x2 great GPS. Worth every penny and I am a much better hunter with it in my hands.

Having a good GPS (I have the 62S) and knowing how to use it is a game changer.

I have a Garmin 62s and wouldn’t be without it. I have then OnX hunt map for it too. However I also use my iPhone a considerable amount as it’s easier to see maps plus having aerials. TopoMaps+ is the best I’ve found for iPhone. It’s free though you get higher res maps if you subscribe which I do. You can download and cache your area to use online as well. The developer has given me the best support too. I even recommended a feature added which he is doing with the next update.

I use my phone but carry my old garmen just incase I don't have any service. But with the onx offline map option you can still use your phone with sucky service. I turn my gps on wherever I park and mark a way point. Then I turn it off. I haven't "used" It in 5 years.

OnX maps with your area downloaded before you go. Has yet to fail me and maintains great accuracy.
