GPS12 quick review

 

I have a GPS12 in a couple years, mainly for surfing the heather and hills in search of my stones, stone circles, shafts and connectors. It is easy to see on a map where the goal is simply on the ground is difficult to decide exactly where you are....

Know where you are within a few feet

No USB connectivity

Packed in a rugged case to handle tough conditions, the GPS 12XL uses an ergonomic rocker keypad for easy one-hand operation and features a user-friendly operating system to keep you on the move instead of pushing buttons.
