    Have you updated your GPS to latest firmware from Gramin? Most of issues like you described can be fixed with software updates, so I would try this first. When you noticed lower accuracy, were you...

    Campmor has a repair department (or at least had it in the past), although I have not used it in a while.

    It's a bit of a thread drift, but since there is a discussion of georeferenced pdfs I would like to point out that most Garmin GPS units can handle georeferenced jpgs that have map images. I have...

    I use just two apps on my phone right now:

    1) OsmAnd+ (it was a one-time purchase a while back for me) - this app has a number of features that I like:

    I think if a tick female gets to feed enough it will lay more than a thousand eggs in one spot. I have suspected for a while that if one is unlucky enough to walk by an area near such nest then this...

    I wonder if the poster of this report has a (real) hiking GPS. In very low visibility it could help him retrace his steps even if he did not have good trail maps on it.

    What I find a bit amusing is that the articles says "about [...] 45.72 meters" - accuracy on par with modern surveying equipment. I guess that's what happens when kids ask Google to do all their math...

    Being no stranger to modifying my gear, I would probably try to think if there is a way to attach a shock cord with a carabiner to your pack. The nice thing about shock cords is that they eliminate...

    I think peakbagger's suggestion is very good - search the Web for NH Stone Wall Mapper to see LIDAR images. They are pretty revealing in terms of abandoned roads and railway beds.

    I carry ibuprofen and acetaminophen in my first aid kit. Ibuprofen seems to work better for me, so that's what I prefer to take, although I very rarely use any pain medications.

    They are probably using high ISO setting which is probably why the picture looks a bit grainy. They could be also setting exposure time higher at night. For comparison, I took these two pictures in...

    Btw, the battery door is usually holding up really well (at least on all Garmin units I had so far), so I wonder if the lock is working properly on yours? It should click as as you turn the lock tab.
