OK, I have been researching a GPS device mainly due to my Android phone going down on the battery within just 5 ish hours use. I am happy(ish) with the accuracy and I love the fact I get the descriptions, hints, logs, a map and a compass all within the one device. Not wishing to lose any convenience I am looking for a FULL paperless GPS device. I have researched a few of these but admit to not understanding how maps are loaded, which companies allow what type of map loading etc.
This is my wish lits
FULL papaerless caching (including previous log entries) not sure if they all hold the previous log entries?
3 axis compass
2 x AA batteries for easy charging
Can load "tile OS maps" (remembering I dont know how this works) or if this is even correct
Its the maps bit I am struggling with, as a base map I have no idea what it covers and my caching tends to be within Cambridge only, but if I go away I could always purchase that set of maps for the area. Or am i better off getting a full UK 1:50000 or even 1:25000? I just dont know.
My most practical so far is the Garmin 62S, as I dont need a built in camera or anything. But more than happy to look at other models and makes on good recommendation. This I can get for around £260 I think.
Any useful views welcome. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME
Yours thanksfully in advance
