Re: DeLorme PN 60 or Garmin 62
I have a DeLorme PN-60 and previously had a PN-20. I have had older Garmin models and use my GPS's for running tracks while horseback riding. The accuracy and signal acquisition under the forest canopy of the PN-20 was very good and the PN-60 is better. The maps that can be downloaded from the DeLorme Map Library may be cheaper, offer a lot of options, and include USGS topo's BUT are time consuming and labor intensive to download. DeLorme used to sell the an entire state of USGS 7.5 minute maps on CD but stopped that. I went with the PN-60 because I have all of the mounts and accessories for the PN-20 and got a deal in the Cabela's Bargain Cave.
Starting all over again and the next time, I will buy a Garmin. You can't buy the third party map cards for the DeLorme that give you property boundaries and BLM lands that are offered for the Garmins. Nor, have I seen that data available for download. For your hunting interest, I would recommend the Garmin. DeLorme has a stronger orientation to yuppies playing with Geocache rather than hunting.
