- I got the Garmin eTrex. It is waterproof but I put it in a waterproof bag to
make extra sure, though. It is meant to be operated with one hand, is
small, light, very easy to use, and inexpensive ($110).

Palm OS Hardware for Navigation

also be used with Palm. This page covers the information needed to get this hardware connected.
Navigation and the Palm OS
- The Palm and its hardware cousins are small units that
can substitute for a graphic display device and storage
device to augment the capabilities of a GPS or can
provide other portable navigation features. They have a
relatively large 160x160 gray-scale display screen for
map display and additional memory and processing
- The Vista is also designed to provide
precise GPS positioning using correction data obtained
from the Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS). This
product will provide position accuracy to less than three
meters when receiving WAAS corrections.
