Tip of the Day 1/20:Choosing a GPSr —water resistance

In this post on Choosing a GPSr (GPS receiver), we’d like to discuss the importance of water resistance.

Believe us,you’ll need this! GPSr devices get dropped onto wet grass and in mud puddles all the time. A unit labeled “water resistant”can survive a brief dunking or a few minutes in the rain. One labeled “waterproof”can be submerged for several minutes. For most casual cachers,water resistance is sufficient.

Note that “waterproof”doesn’t mean “floatable.”It’s a good idea to attach any unit to your body in some way so it doesn’t sink down to Davy Jones’Locker.
