Folks, I'm sure you have received this questions thousands of times,\nbut I was wondering if someone might be willing to share their advice\nconcerning the purchase of a handheld GPS unit. I have used Delorme's\nearthmate (little yellow box) GPS unit in the car with an old laptop\nfor some time now, but would like a reliable, waterproof unit to carry\nwith me hiking and camping in the woods. Ideally, I would like to be\nable to hook it up to my PC as well as Palm VX (via serial, RS232\ncable)download maps to it, and a good color display would be nice. Is\ngood mapping software available for it?\nAlso, I have had trouble when using the earthmate under trees, and\nwould like a unit that would be sensitive and reliable. Any help is\nGREATLY appreciated, please reply and if you know of where such a unit\nand mapping software could be purchased at a good price, I would\nreally appreciate it as well. Thanks so much in advance, and please\nreply to\n[email][/email]. Thanks again!
