    Default GPS hunting unit

    I have been considering some kind of off road navigation when I am on the logging roads when hunting moose. There are so many out there to choose from it can be a real head scratcher. I would like a recommendation from my fellow hunters. I just need a unit that can track my progress on the way in and out so basically I don't get turned around back in the logging roads wondering around for hours trying to find my way out of a logging cut. Don't need all those super tech bells and whistles just a good reasonably priced unit that's hand held and real easy to use .
    Any help would be great
    Thanks

    Anything Garmin. I have a Garmin 64, with a BackRoads Ontario chip. It shows the logging roads, creeks, lakes, as well as topo info. I was surprised how detailed the maps were.

    I have a Garmin map 76 works great user friendly. But if you just want a little security for getting back out look into the bushnell backtrack they're under a 100 bucks I've never used one so I can't comment on effectiveness but it's worth a look.

    Any of the current units will work. I would advise getting one with the longest barely life. No use having a unit that dies after two hours of continuous use.

    Get something that is waterproof and if you are in a boat put something that keeps it from sinking (a bouy that you test at home in the bath tub). My Garmin is the best, I know exactly where I am and it tracks my path. I have the topo maps on it, one thing I wish is that I could download aerial photos to it but I do not know if that even exists.

    I try to avoid the touch screen ones. I have a 5 year old garmin and it works great.

    Overlay the photos on Google Earth, georeference them(align them exactly adjusting transparency) save them to Google Earth(increase the transparency so they will be readable) then send them to a .kml file I think, then load to your Garmin.
