    Thanks in advance on any help you all give.
    I am completely new to the gps world. I have always relied on my gut and a good old compass. now that my whole family joins me most of the time i am wanting something with a little more security. to make sure we get back to camp or the vehicle. before when it was just me out there a little turn around was just an added adventure. but with the wife and kids they don't find as adventurous as i do getting a mile of track our turn around for a an hr or so till i get my bearings straight. sometimes my gut takes over the compass. or chasing the elk around more then paying attention where i'm at.

    I am looking at either the new 700 oregon or the 650t oregon. I have $400 to spend and those seem to be the best 2 options. Or another model worth looking into.

    my family does a lot of extreme hiking/backpacking. also avid hunters.
