If you buy one you'll never go anywhere without one. I bought the Eagle because it seemed to be the most for the money. I didn't want to spend alot of money and this one did everything I wanted. It has a 12 channel parallel reciever which makes it great in the woods. I never have a problem getting a signal except when it is buried in a pack or low pocket. For you I would recommend Eagles new Map Guide Pro. It has the same reciever as mine does but it also has a built in map. It comes with a CD-ROM that has more detailed maps in it. All you have to do is download the detailed maps to your GPS and it shows you where you are on the map. It also has more waypoints than you could ever use. I would love one of those but they are about $500. Mine was $175. Both are waterproof also.
I have never heard that using a GPS for hunting can be illegal. I find that incredibly stupid. Where can I get more info on the subject? Thanks
