Just in time for Christmas, I am celebrating the grand opening of CampingBlogger with a contest for a brand new eTrex Summit® HC, from Garmin™. The Summit is one of the best handheld GPS receivers for hiking, backpacking and general outdoor use. It has a high-sensitivity GPS engine, which allows the Summit to track the GPS signal under some pretty harsh conditions, like thick tree canopy or deep canyons. In addtion, the GPS engine can also process the WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System) signal, which increases the accuracy of the GPS receiver. And as if that wasn’t enough, the Summit has an integrated barometric altimeter, which provides better elevation accuracy than the GPS position, and an electronic compass for picking an azimuth even when stationary. It’s a great little handheld and you can learn more about this $229.99 beauty on the Summit HC product page.
