Q. Great problem.
My son has requested a GPS for his Birthday/Christmas - and you've guessed it - I haven't a clue about what he might require not having done much more than wander around the hills here in Rossendale, and never anything too taxing!
He is an experienced walker who can find his way with OS maps and grid referneces.
He mentioned he would like a GPS for hill walking but one where he can put in his own grid references and perhaps load maps.
Is there such a thing?
Do you have any suggestions as to which I could buy for him or where I could go to find out such information.
I've looked on the Internet but have no idea what to buy!
Thanks A perplexed Mum
