While GPS devices have slowly been displaced by smartphones and built-in car navigators, there are still plenty of reasons to have a portable GPS at hand when traveling, hiking or climbing. Unlike your phone it cannot be interrupted by an incoming call or message, ensuring non-stop route guidance. Portable GPS units are more practical than any other devices, and can be left in your glove box or bag as your back plan for situations when something is going wrong. Thanks to their compact and ergonomic design, portable GPS devices do not require lots of room for storage, while providing the functionality of full-size systems.
If you are on the market for a portable GPS, there are several key points to keep in mind to choose the right device. The first one is the type of the receiver a GPS utilizes. If it has poor sensitivity, you run the risk of loosing connection when out of the beaten path. Another crucial factor is map updates. It is better to choose a portable GPS with the latest maps uploaded because they are the most accurate and complete. Optimum screen brightness is also very important, as it may be difficult to read a map in bright daylight.
