asked about handheld GPSrs...maybe should be looking at car ones instead? in GPS technology and devices Posted January 26, 2012 · Edited January 26, 2012 by Portland Cyclist Spark, based on what you've said in this and other threads, I think what you really need is a new iPhone 4s with a contract on whichever service provided works best in your area. There would of course be no way to justify the contract if it was ONLY for geoaching or ONLY for driving directions. But it would be eminently suited to both of the tasks, and you'd be getting a heck of a lot more for your money, other things you could be doing with it than your older, no service, phone. I *know* my iPhone seems a ridiculously expensive way to do any of the INDIVIDUAL things I use it for. But I use it for so many things and it fills in for so many OTHER gadgets, that on balance it's a bargain. No willing to go that way? Then yes, a nuvi will fill the "I need something for driving" need, better than a handheld hiking GPS. Right tool for the job.
