Why use GPS equipment?
GPS (Global Positioning Systems) are found in many devices, from mobile phones and cars to GPS watches and emergency beacons. They're super useful for determining your location, aiding navigation, and mapping. In fact, whether you realise it or not, you're probably already using a GPS as you go about your day-to-day activities.
However, much of the GPS navigation equipment used in mobile phones and the like, won't make the grade when it comes to off-grid adventuring so it's important to understand your requirements and the capabilities of the device/devices you plan on using before you set off.
What GPS navigation devices are available at Anaconda?
Because GPS navigation devices come in so many shapes and sizes, it's important to get the right one for your requirements. You should also make sure you know how to use your device properly before you head off — taking your device for a test run to make sure you'll be able to use it as intended, is a great idea. Let's take a look at the different kinds of GPS devices available at Anaconda and when to use them.
While smartphones are useful for everyday navigation, when you look at the capabilities a quality handheld GPS offers, smartphones simply don't stack up. With topographic mapping, the ability to insert waypoints, plan routes and log data a handheld GPS offers far more functionality. What's more, handheld GPS devices are built for adventuring, they're rugged, reliable and have long battery life for extended use in the wilderness.
GPS watches are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, trail running, kayaking and just about any other active pursuit. While they usually won't offer the same level of detailed mapping as a handheld device, they will give you advanced fitness metrics like heart rate, VO2 max, distance travelled, and calories burned.
GPS fish finders
A good GPS fish finder is often a boater's best friend. They not only enable you to track your location, but they also make finding fish a whole lot easier. With fish finding tools including sonar, scanning imaging and coastal mapping, they are a true game changer when it comes to fishing from a boat.
