Tip of the Day 12/23:Choosing a GPSr —screen

In this post on Choosing a GPSr (GPS receiver),we’d like to explain what to look for in a screen when shopping for a GPSr.

Look for a unit with a bright screen that is large enough to deliver detail without making the receiver bulky. Auto navigation units generally excel in this area,but most aren’t waterproof and the screens are easily broken. A resolution of 320×320 pixels is standard on handheld units and should serve most geocaching needs pretty well.

Screen brightness varies widely. You’ll want a GPSr that can be easily read in bright sunlight,so ask retailers to let you take a few units outdoors and test them. As a rule,you’ll want to run battery-powered units at the lowest possible level of brightness in order to conserve battery power,but you need to be able to jack up those lumens when the situation demands it.
