Recommendations on a GPS for benchmarking?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have been using Lowrance GPS's for over 10 years to locate benchmarks and geocaches. All my Lowrance's have now quit on me, and I'm thinking of switching to a modern Garmin. I'm looking for recommendations on which unit to buy. Benchmarking is much more important to me than geocaching. I would like to load up all benchmarks for a state (or states). Ideally I would like to select a different icon depending on the benchmark type, which may involve writing some code since (oddly enough) the shapefile records do not indicate the type (disk, tank, mast, rod, etc.) but the datasheet does. Any recommendations on which GPS to get? And is there a process like this written up somewhere? Any help appreciated.

Thanks a lot

Ron

Ofcourse everyone has their own preference. I'm very satisfied with my Garmin GPSMAP 62S, the newer model being the 64S. It's been great. Good memory w/SD card, rugged, waterproof and great satellite coverage. I use rechargeable lithium ion batteries that last for a good amount of time. Check out GPSCity.com.

 

I load my benchmarks via GSAK, but I admit I don't know anything about writing my own code. I wish I did.
