small GPS device that only gives lat long and works quickly
- I have been searching for quite a while to find a cheap, simple, small,
gps that just gives you lat and long and doesn't do anything else. I
need something that will quickly tell me my location during a collection
event but not have to worry about lugging something around and batteries
running out if I leave it on. I found it and thought others might like
it too. It is called the Bushnell Backtrack 5. Although the original
and the backtrack 3 are smaller they don't give you lat long (just
directions back to your car).
Even sitting in my 2 story house this thing gives me a good location.
Outside it takes about 5 seconds from power on to location data. Has a
nice light for night readings too. Takes a couple double aa batteries
and is about 4 inches long, 2.5 wides, maybe 3/4 of inch thick.
Price on amazon was 70 dollars.
