Although I wrote these pages a few years ago, much of the info is still relevant:

Thank you dpatton. Lesson learned: Do more research before purchasing item, not after.

... Also, as most of what I use a GPS for involves forested areas, I want to get a GPS receiver with improved reception under forest canopy.

P.S.

(pdops waves back) Yup it's time for an upgrade here too. So many to choose from now.

Thanks for the note on the article in Wikipedia. I've corrected my error about the trail and Google Earth. The trail down Meadow Creek is not visible in Google Earth - the main trail in the valley is.

For the record, I ended up buying the Garmin eTrex Summit HC as it has what it turns out I should have been looking for:

High sensity GPS receiver, electronic compass and altimeter, colour screen, and decent price ($240.00). It has less memory than others, but for local N. Shore, Squamish, Whistler type stuff, it seems more than adequate. The guy at Deakin Outdoors in N. Van was helpful. I'm happy! (Except that I have to return the Legend Cx....)
