I am pondering for some time now to get my own GPS device. For the upcoming field work (starting Sept. 29th) I will definitly need one, and no one seems to be able to lend me one. Our 10 or so university GPS are all broken. What GPS would you recommend for geological field work and mapping? I figure I need one that is quite accurate even under light tree cover, and also one that is able to display different projections, like UTM, Gauss-Krüger and other widely used methods. Do they still use Lambert in France? Most of my work I do in Europe - Germany, France and Switzerland and other central European states.
What do you think about the Garmin Colorado 300, the GPS 60 or the GPSmap 60 series? Price is really an issue for me.
