Re: Garmin GPS ?

Is there a different Garmin that I should be looking at, that doesn't have a touch screen? I will be using it mostly in the cold with gloves.

    Not sure but it shouldn't matter.

    Hmm, well maybe I need to try them again. Mine were rechargeable so maybe that had something to do with it.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Well, it sounds like I may have had a bad set of lithium batteries. Either way there are sufficient options for the cold so I wouldn't worry about that.

    For gloves I would personally look at the Vista HCx. I have had excellent success with the etrex line in general so I wold say you can't go wrong with any of them. Just find what you need and go with it.

    Just as a side note for Mac users.

    I have a Mac and the original chip I got from GPS Hunting Maps would not work with Garmin Basecamp when using the Mac. I just sent in the chip for an upgrade to 2012 and that chip works with Garmin Basecamp and a Mac.

    The result is the upgrade allows me to use the Mac laptop to peruse an area on a much bigger screen for more detail and then download routes, waypoints, etc to my Montana.

    IMHO a very handy tool for planning a hunt and making sure you are where you are before you pull the trigger.
