GPS today is about a heck of a lot more than marking a waypoint or finding your position. You can get a basic, entry-level gps that does only simple tasks, but why would you, when only a few dollars more will get you a host of built-in features and capabilities?
The spectrum of available features includes an ever-growing array of detailed lake maps designed for fisherman, and built-in base maps with huge volumes of points of interest data. There are enhanced options for topographical maps and street maps. Various models feature a built-in electronic compass, barometric altimeter, celestial tables for sun and moon calculations, and turn-by-turn driving directions.
A handheld gps can literally guide you to the lake, even pointing out gas and food and other points of interest along the way. Then when you’re on the water it can show you navigation information, depth contours and bottom structure. And when you have waypoints and routes you want to save (or share with your buddies), removable media cards make data transfers quick and easy. Today’s handheld gps truly are modern marvels, and they will help you find more fish!
