I use services. "small world"

Locating beacon: impossible to navigate but transmit track track + options for sending messages, text messages and emergency navigation I make good old-fashioned-maps. They are not easily biodegradable power intensive and give a full picture of the entire trip. Brand ofer 41452.5918287037

Before taking SPOT or any satellite or telephone communication
And know that satellites are allowed in the destination country.
Some countries prohibit the use or income of such a field
And countries need to get a special permit to use such a device.
And countries that prohibit the use of satellite communications in certain parts of the country. (There are countries that use satellite communication without permission is considered a serious offence).
BTW GSM SPOT costs $ 80 on eBay + shipping
There is also a SPOT that connects to a smart phone and a satellite phone.
At approximately $ 120 + shipping.
But it's not all Israeli navigation GPS found not found through the day.
(Offers all travel to learn some basic navigation and not rely on GPS is not always reliable and available can become damaged, get wet, broken, even the batteries can run out and depending on the terrain, mountains, clouds, trees, and more (not saying you don't need GPS says just thinking
Don't rely on it).
It's not difficult can learn from YouTube and make it fun too map-reading and challenge and even sport and sport racing navigating).
, Map, compass, stars, time, and the SPOT Dan) great for emergencies and send messages
If space constraints and branching

Hi,

Thanks for the tips. Think about spot. That's why actually went, but certainly a thought and interest.

However, for navigating, still I would like if someone can opinion about different instruments, how and where download/buy maps etc, some recommendations and guidance.

Thank you very much,

Jolly

Garmin devices are reliable and relatively large lifetime batteries
Recommend to see Dakota model 20, including altimeter barometer and compass, and his proper maps are hard to find these devices map to download.
Definitely not buy from the official importer in the country! Or of sea traffic, or eBay etc.

Actually I think hard to find these broadband maps to download. Nowadays there are forums (I found several) to download links directly to formal and official maps. You can find almost everything.

The last time 20 Grameen's etrex. It's great for me and satisfies all my requirements. Ninelives99 41453.7225578704

Of course!
You can make your own and then check the device
And you can also find maps with סמ"ש and upload to the device. But it depends on what already exists in the market, what other people have posted online.

The Israel land map with סמ"ש is found that surprised me (admit I didn't check it so thoroughly but it looks great on the Bulletin Board).

In addition, I saw that there are maps that contain all the check AT/PCT
Not checked because it is irrelevant to me at the moment but if the markup for these paths you have markings of other famous trails in the world.

If this device is in addition to the map, I don't see the point but the track (no gadget.)

Am I missing something?

About navigate

In my opinion (that doesn't mean it's true) it is better to use:
0) head. This means that to keep track. Mark in the important points. When that's not enough.
1) learn to use compass + map. 95% of problems it solves things except: an area completely flat (corlia, Finland), surface with periodic information (like West hills all look alike), within the Gorge is part of a very complicated system with many, fragmenting, breaking away. In other words, clearly no triangulation points.
2) when you know you're going to a remote area, or when the tapin on 1. So maybe you need GPS.

Now to the matter,
I think it's more GPS need batteries, broken and something you have to deal with him. So if it's possible to do without (and in most cases is indeed possible) then it is best to leave it at home. But since taking it, so I would like all he does is display coordinates. I.e. without maps. Display map is another feature, complicating the device less secure (likely breaks down). Not to mention it's touchscreen in my opinion something that can't be trusted. Simply use the map with UPS or Lat/Long of your machine. It is safer, so you can't rely on the source device to map you need.

Some devices by Garmin that are considered safe and are very very popular. Models without maps:
$ 110 10-ETrex
Foretrex 301-$ 150
Foretrex 401-$ 200

Along with all this, there are also other devices. I want to try the Holux M-241 by. He basically GPS logger with display Lat/Long coordinates. With doing homework and draw a grid Lat/Long on the map this device really satisfy me. It has excellent absorption, working on one AA battery weighs 35 grams and costs $ 60. Getting real reviews. But it's a little UL. I don't know if I want to go in that direction.

Fun trips!

I bought a few months ago the Etrex.
No maps where to download, for example OpenStreetMaps.
If not a head and loaded into the device to plan something on the fly.
Working on two AA batteries, like 24 hours.

I use it mainly for bicycles and the device improved the experience and the very peace of mind:-)

Hello

I'm going to buy in the USA as a GPS Etrex models of Garmin Foretrex and or want to ask a question that is very important to me: If the handset was bought abroad had he still displays the new coordinates of Israel?

Thank you.

Yes, you can do it from the device.

Http://www.harim.co.il/articles/152/etrex-GPS-% D7% 99% D7% A9% D7% A8% D7% 90% D7% 9C% D7% 99.htm

They indeed since 2002, but they work with all garmin is the Trump for today (I have no experience with the models and their runtime, so I didn't check, but these instructions work with garmin Etrex Vista 12 old and newer H Mahan).
