What is a GPS device?

Get a Grip on Your Location

One of the most popular pieces of high-tech gear you can use on your hiking excursion is a GPS (Global Positioning System) device. Next to a map and compass, a GPS unit is your most important navigational tool. These devices can help search locations world-wide, expanding your horizons as a regular hiker. In addition, GPS devices are available with several accessories to make using them even more convenient. GPS holsters, for example, keep your unit strapped to your body for easy use. Many also offer recharging cords that plug right into your vehicle so you'll never run out of navigational power.
