Handheld GPS Buyer's Guide

Garmin handheld GPS units are the perfect partner for the outdoor enthusiast. Whether you are wanting to know your exact GPS location on land or out on the water, GPS handhelds that we sell will also provide you with this essential information - so you never get lost. In addition the vast majority of GPS handhelds available from ActiveGPS will also accept various Garmin mapping titles on SD/microSD card to further enhance the on-screen information. This handheld GPS buyer's guide will help you identify which unit will best suit your needs.

Usage: On land or at sea

There are specific handheld devices designed for on land use and other devices designed for use on the water. Once you know the intended use this will narrow-down your choice. Generally, devices for on land usage are touchscreen and do not float but will be waterproof. However, for usage on the water, GPS handheld devices will be controllable by button (not touchscreen) and some e.g. Garmin GPSMAP 78s and GPSMAP 78 also float too.

Screen Size

Larger screened devices such as the Garmin Montana 680t can be used with street-level maps e.g. UK and Ireland (sold separately) to navigate you in your car too (Garmin Montana car mount sold separately). Dual orientation, meaning you can view in portrait or landscape view by turning the device around, is available with on all Garmin Montana and Garmin Oregon models. Screen sizes range from 2.6-inch on the Garmin eTrex range up to 4-inch on the Garmin Montana range. Most handheld GPS sytems have colour screens whereas some offer grey-scale screen e.g. Garmin GPS 73 and Garmin Foretrex 601.

Types of GPS Antenna

If you plan to use the GPS device in dense woodland with a heavily obscured view of the satellites in the sky you should buy a GPS handheld with an pertruding GPS antenna which'sticks-out' of the top of the sat nav device, If you are not in deep canyons, or heavily wooded areas you can buy a GPS handheld device with built-in GPS technology although you may prefer a stronger satellite connection made only available by the petruding GPS antenna.

Battery Life

Battery life of handheld devices vary from 16 hours on the Garmin eTrex up to 22 hours on the Garmin Montana range.
