GPS and Portable GPS Devices - The hot item this year for travelers.
Iím thinking that one of the hottest gift items for Bikers this year is going to be portable GPS devices. A GPS is a navigational system that tracks your position on a small electronic map. They bounce a beam off a satellite and are accurate.
I wish I could give you a recommendation about particular models. I canít. However, when you shop online, there are often recommendations from people who have bought the devices.
When buying any electronic device, I recommend buying one step down from state of the art. One step down is often half the price and usually good enough to get the job done.
The Garmin eTrex Portable GPS with Waterproof exterior, below, was selected as a representative of what to look for. It is priced affordably and being able to contend with poor weather is always a big plus.
