Title: GPS receiver recommendations
Post by: nickwilliams on March 07, 2019, 10:29:56 pm
I'm looking for recommendations for a make and model of GPS receiver suitable for taking on an expedition to Mulu. Key features I can think of:

- Mechanically robust
- Small and light weight
- Powered by dry cells
- Works under tree cover
- Plenty of memory for storing track and  waypoints
- Reasonably priced

Anything else to consider?

Nick.
