DeLorme Earthmate PN-40

 

There has been a lot of talk that the PN-40 takes a little longer than some other handheld GPS systems to figure out. Navigating through all the different features can get a little daunting and there is not always a clear cut way of getting from one...

Ironclad reputation for getting reception in adverse conditions

The smallish screen may take some getting used to

This is the best all-around value for a recreational GPS.

Earthmate PN-40

 

Although it is not designed specifically as a road bike GPS , the Earthmate PN-40 has qualities that make it a great option for some cyclists. The best feature of the Earthmate outdoor and bike GPS

This is a rugged outdoor GPS that provides great features for biking. It is waterproof, runs on AA batteries and has a beautiful color display

The battery life of this GPS is only eight hours

Although this GPS is a great choice, it lacks the ability to provide important data like cadence, temperature and calories burned.

Perfect for hunting in unfamiliar areas. Allows you to stalk until dusk and still get back to the vehicle. Waypoints are easy to mark with various pins. Rugged little unit. Would highly recommend.
