What Is the best GPS device that you can get without breaking the bank that shows private and public lands?
They are crap. They point you in the direction you originated from, not the route you took. Might be okay in a parking lot to find your vehicle or on flat open areas but on broken ground in the backcountry they are pretty useless.I don't wanna hijack your thread Opah, but anyone have any experiance with those so called Back-track GPS devices? I've seen them for sale for around 80 bucks, figure they could come in handy, especially when hunting alone.
I have the Garmin Montana with the OnXMaps SD card. The OnXMaps SD card is designed to work in all Garmin color GPS units. Yes, you can walk right up to the property line. Granted there is a small margin of error , depending on how many satellites your connected with. Since I use a GPS connected to satellites, it works everywhere, unless your under a heavy canopy of trees or brush. I have yet to experience that. I cannot speak for the phone program, as I do not use it.Good info as always. My question is about backcountry reception. If you are on top of a mountain in the middle of no mans land, will these things still work??? Can I walk right up to the border of tejon and know I'm still not over the line? Seems like at some point these things could not keep up with you? Maybe a test is in order...
