Handheld GPS Comparison Tables

Please see below the handheld GPS comparison tables for Garmin Montana, Oregon, eTrex and GPSMAP GPS devices available to buy from ActiveGPS. There are THREE separate handheld GPS comparison tables for the products compared - scroll down the page to view them all.

The main features you may like to consider when buying a handheld device is whether the unit features a dual orientation display which means you can view the device in both landscape and portrait mode. This is ideal if you are hiking or using it in a car as a sat nav.

Some GPS handheld systems also include a built-in digital camera and you might also want to consider the weight of the device if you are carrying it over long distances and with lots of extra kit. Screen size is an important factor to consider and if you want a device that floats, then the GPSMAP 78 or 78s are the only models for you to consider.

For further help on deciding the best handheld GPS system to buy for your needs or maybe as a gift for somebody else, please see the product pages or phone 01733 777623 (Mon-Fri 9:30am-5pm) outside of these hours please contact us.
