I do not consider a GPS necessary for the PCT. I do not know about the
CDT. the guides are written in tens of a mile and some waypoints are very
easy to miss. The talk on the list about GPS units has gone right by me
because I do not know a thing about them; I have never used one and there
is nobody around to teach me. Nevertheless, I am thinking about launching
off into GPS space. So...
How helpful is a GPS for the CDT?
What kind of features are necessary and what just make it too complex or
burdensome for a neophyte to operate?
What is the weight and expense of these puppies?
Can somebody recommend a specific brand and an inexpensive place to buy it?
I plan to have a friend shadow me with my horse trailer and truck part of
the time on the CDT. I am less concerned with my navigational skills, than
I am with trying to coommunicate and find my driver, especially in a lot of
places that may not have cell phone use.
How much of New Mexico near the CDT has cell phone coverage (Verizon);
I am looking for a small walkie talkie that may be helpful. I thought you
search and rescue types might have some experience with this.
