The device has 3.7GB memory with an option to add SD card which allows you to upload external maps. eTrex 20x is also compact, weighs just 5.1oz and easy to carry making it stress-free for hikers. The low price is due to the lack of not so essential features like wireless sharing, barometric altimeter, electronic compass, and a smaller display.

Features to Know

  • Design

  • Satellite Reception

Most Garmin handheld GPS devices released in the past few years come with the reception of both GPS and GLONASS with WAAS enabled. eTrex 20x also had both GPS and GLONASS enabling to quickly lock on to the signal and works well even in heavy cover and deep canyons. Satellite reception of the device is on par with expensive units.

  • Sensors

Unlike the most other devices in the list Garmin eTrex 20x comes only with a differential compass instead of an electronic or 3-axis compass. Differential compass is also easy to use and accurate, but it should be steady and take a little bit time to calibrate the axis of the device. It even doesn’t come with a barometric altimeter which are used to measure altitude and pressure in the location.

  • Maps

The default maps provided by the Garmin are basic world base maps and doesn’t have many details on the maps which makes them worthless.

Finally, these are the 8 best hiking GPS devices that are suitable for outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing and more. Also, read our hiking GPS Buying Guide below and select the best suitable handheld GPS device for your requirements.

Hiking GPS Buying Guide:

Battery life:

Battery life is the most important thing while selecting a device, as you never know where your hiking will lead you to. Maybe you will be at a place where there will be no electricity. So it is always good to go with a device that comes with a good battery life.

18 to 20 hours of battery life in a single charge is good enough and most devices support AA batteries. So, having a couple of AA batteries can be a lot helpful and extends the battery life of the unit.

Maps & Planning Software:

You should go for a device which comes with a planning software for PC and Mac. By using a planning software, you will easily be able to create waypoints and routes for your trip. And once you are done with your planning simply import in on your device and you are good to go.

Apart from this, a planning software also allows you to get the advanced information about the routes. Such as distance, ascent, weather and a few other kinds of stuff.  Also, some of the brands do offer their own planning software. For example, Garmin has their BaseCamp app.

Wireless Features:

Wireless features are also something that you need to look for in GPS devices which can communicate with each other are quite helpful. As both of the devices will able to share maps, geocaches, and other data, by doing so you will be able to save quite a lot of time.

Also, some of the units are capable of satellite communication from the remote areas. Hence, as a result, you will be able to communicate for help if you ever face any danger.

Some of the devices also offer smartphone compatibility over a wireless connection.  This type of unit is good because it helps you to get notifications related to the weather, or if you have taken a wrong path.

Compass:

There are two types of compass that comes with a GPS device they are differential compass and electronic compass. Differential compass is the outdated compass available in old and low-cost models. They are good and easy to but just not as easy as an electronic compass, users need to place the device in a steady and horizontal state to find the correct directions. However, you wouldn’t need or wait for it in electronic compass, users would get the right directions straight away whenever required. Both the compasses are good to use but if you want the advanced unit then go for electronic compass devices.

2-way Radio:

2-way radio is a great feature. As it allows you to communicate with other 2-way radio users. Some of the GPS devices come with 20 miles of range. This feature is very helpful for people who are hiking or hunting in groups. This feature is available in Garmin Rino devices which allows you to talk, text messaging and sharing location between compatible devices within the 20-mile radius.

Build Quality & Water Rating:

Build quality and water rating also matter quite a lot. You never know what will happen to you when you plan to go for Hiking. Your device may fall from your hand, or you may splash water on it. And these are the things that can easily damage your device. So it is better to choose a device which comes with a great built quality and water rating. This way you may never need to worry about breaking your device and getting lost in the wild.

Navigation Sensors:

Navigation sensors are very useful for hiking they let you know the altitude, air pressure, speed you moving and much more. Most common and useful navigation sensors are Barometric altimeter sensors which calculate the altitude of the device. The accelerometer is another sensor that appears in a few devices it provides data of how fast the device is moving or traveling. Compass also comes with the navigational sensor and is used to find directions and we prefer electronic or 3-axis compass over the differential compass.

Automatic Routing:

When provided with detailed maps like TOPO 24k maps or City Navigator maps the device shows the direction to a destination with routing similar to Google Maps in our smartphones. However, many maps like TOPO 100k maps are not detailed hence this feature doesn’t work with these maps. This feature is very useful whenever you have reached a new rural place and doesn’t know much about it.

Buttons or touchscreen:

Now if you have noticed that some of the GPS devices come with buttons and some of them have a touchscreen. So the question is what is the difference?

Well, the touchscreen devices are easy to handle. It offers you an easy to type and navigate experience. Also, touchscreen devices can be used in landscape or portrait view, but there are few cons.

For example, if you are planning to hike in cold weather. Then you have to remove your gloves at first to use the device. Although few of them supports gloves touches, but those are pretty expensive.

Talking about the Buttons, well as of now not all of the software is developed to understand the touchscreen commands. Hence most of them choose a button enabled device over a touchscreen one. Navigating and using a buttoned device is a tough job, typing something may take ages.  So it is good to go with a touchscreen one unless you are visiting cold and snowy places.

These are some of the top features that you should look for in a GPS device for hiking. However, to make it more easy for you, we already have mentioned all the GPS devices good for hiking. So make sure you are checking each and every device and get the best device for your usage.
