A Comprehensive Buyer's Guide to Handheld GPS

Below is a list of some of the top handheld GPS receivers starting from basic models to the Cadillac's. In every category, there is a recommendation based on its cost, features, and user reviews. All prices indicated are up to date from the time this was written.

Remember that many handhelds aren't equipped with detailed maps. Good thing for Garmin owners, plenty free maps are available, as well as 1:24,000 scale topo maps.

Affordable handheld commercial GPS receivers - Top pick by users is the Garmin eTrex Venture HC, which has a color screen that is sunlight-readable and has the capacity to accept topo maps that are detailed. It includes a USB cable that can be used for transferring waypoints, routes, and tracks from a PC to the GPS. Retail value is $170, however, some retailers offer it for $115-$130. Other budget devices available include the eTrex 10, which is a recent model that is built with a monochrome screen and doesn't have the function to load maps. This is sold for a little over $110. There is also the Garmin eTrex 20 that has several features that aren't seen in the Venture HC. This one is available for $180.

Mid-priced handheld GPS receivers - The top choice of users is the Garmin Oregon 450 that has a touchscreen and is equipped with a tri-axial electronic compass and barometric altimeter. It has the capability for BirsdEye aerial imagery and Garmin custom maps. This device also includes advanced track navigation. It is available for a low price of $250, but often the price is higher than that. Other mid-priced commercial GPS units include the Garmin Dakota 20, which is the smaller model of the Oregon. After some time of being in the market, the price of this GPS should decrease. The Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx offers great performance but is really lacking in features. Recently, it's been sold for as little as $199. On the other hand, Delorme PN-60 GPS has the ability to accommodate aerial imagery and genuine USGS topos. The screen is smaller than that of an Oregon, but it includes a very strong and complex software. It is sold in the market for approximately $260.

Higher-end handheld GPS receivers - A number of GPS devices are considered top-notch because of its features, such as a tri-axial electronic compass and barometric altimeter. The Garmin Montana 600 is one of these impressive gadgets. Although it is slightly big, it is still the top dual-use unit offered by Garmin. The Garmin GPSMAP 62s is ideal for individuals who aren't looking for a touch screen device. It offers BirdsEye aerial imagery, advanced track navigation and custom maps. There is also the Garmin Oregon 550t that mixes a touch screen interface with a high resolution screen and also includes pre-loaded topo maps of the whole U.S. In addition, this commercial GPS is equipped with a 3.2 MP geotagging camera. Cool.
