Sorry, the only dedicated GPS I have is installed in the Defender and even then it's really a Sat Nav as part of the entertainment system.
Why a dedicated GPS? I use Memory Map on my iPhone which gives me position to within a few metres and I can pre-load 1:25K maps for the area I'm going to. Actually, I now have about 75% of the UK on my phone and, as long as I have a connection, it will download anything that's missing.
I appreciate there is concern about privacy using Google maps but there are loads of alternatives and many will operate without a network connection.
I guess my point is why carry two devices if your phone has a GPS satellite receiver (not all do admittedly)? what are the advantages of a dedicated GPS that makes it worth having another thing in your pocket?
What is your budget? The older garmin etrex/vista/legend still go around the £40 - £70 range. And for what you want to do, you may need to go higher....Morning all
I'm after a pocket GPS to use for hiking. Don't have a fortune to spend and happy to consider a second hand one. What do your recommend and why?
Thanks in advance

But you could have what you want around the £40 mark, but and windows ce PDA that has GPS, and upload a software program like arcpad.
Then a simple case of removing the sd card and uploading what you want. The main gamble is getting a good condition old pda
