    Default Hand Held GPS Recommendations?

    Gentlemen,

    Our department has tasked me with finding a quality hand held GPS unit that we can enter longitude and latitude coordinates and be given directions to that location. The two requirements are:

    1. hand held
    2. the ability to enter coordinates.

    All the hydrants in our county have recently been GPS mapped and we are looking to embrace this new capability.

    Can any of yall make a recommendation?

    Thanks!

    See if there are any geo cachers in your area, and see what they use.

    Also more then likely you can do some hands on before you buy
