Mobile app (iPhone or Android) vs. GPS

  • "Best" depends on your style of hunting. Previous discussions.
  • This is easily the most frequently discussed topic. Older (before 2012 or so) conversations centered around the better antenna and receivers in dedicated portable units. That's about a wash in modern gear. Ruggedized, dedicated units are more likely to survive a fall down a cliff and into a creek. They're also able to function completely out of cell range. Durable cases, external battery packs, and offline maps and programs have removed a lot of the excuses that used to surround our beloved phones and users of this solution point to the carefree nature of caching (while you're in coverage) and the realtime logs ("hey, the owner archived it this morning...")




Delorme was purchased by Garmin. Support for the PN-20, 40, and 60 level products is nearly non-existent. ?

Tips for asking questions

  • Pick good subject lines. The odds of you quickly catching the attention of knowledgeable help go way up when you. Subjects like "Error 403 transferring waypoints on 60C under BlerfoMAP 3.34" are much more serviceable than "Newbie question".
  • Punctuate the subject correctly. Interrogative sentences (questions) end in question marks.
  • Include brand and model info when you're asking about problems. If you're using a program that runs on more than one OS, include info on that, too.
  • If you're asking advice about maps, include what country/continent you're interested in.
