GPS... and the great outdoors... its all about having the right tools for the job

With the credit crunch biting ever harder into the average households budget this year, more and more holiday makers are choosing to head for UK destinations than more exotic climates and whether it’s a short break, a brisk run on a paved trail, fishing on a river in the Scottish highlands or camping lakeside with the family, the “must have” device along with your boots & flask is the Handheld GPS.

With core features like “location aware” on every GPS system, the device knows exactly where you are – all of the time – Hit the “mark your location” button before you venture out, and no matter where you find yourselves the device allows you to re-trace your steps back to “base camp”

For the more discerning Hikers & orienteer’s out-there persuing Geocaching or wayfinding, or if your looking for a little more than the basic latitude/longitude & a compass, you need look no further than…

The Magellan Triton 2000 with additional functionality including a 2MP camera (for capturing the moment), a ruggedized waterproof casing, touch screen, built in voice recorder and even a built in flash light.

So if your heading out for a piece of the wilder side of life this year – Don’t leave home without yours.
