Congrats to Bill R, yesterday’s winner of the Platypus Platy Bottles.
With the GaiaGPS app, my smartphone has the same functionality as a conventional handheld GPS unit. In many respects a smartphone-as-GPS is an even better system: it saves me several hundred dollars and 4-8 ounces; it utilizes a device with a better screen (bigger, brighter, higher-resolution, pinch-and-zoom, swipe, etc); and it gives me access to gold standard data like USGS quads and Landsat imagery, rather than proprietary data that is generally inferior.
I use my GPS as a backup navigation tool, when I want confirmation or a level of precision that I cannot get with my paper maps, compass, and watch. Read more about my map system.
