I a traditional GPS (Garmin Oregon) with the Backroads map set for Alberta and BC (I really like the level of trail information these map sets provide). While a dedicated GPS and smartphone will be just as accurate when locked onto the GPS constellation, a dedicated GPS can lock under a wider variety of conditions (clouds, bad weather, forests, canyons etc).
