Handheld GPS System
A handheld GPS system is a small and compact GPS device that typically fits in the palm of your hand. Handheld GPS systems are made such so that they are easy and convenient to carry when on foot. Handheld GPS systems are great for pinpointing your exact location on the earth and are very useful while hunting, fishing, geocaching, etc.
Handheld GPS devices fall into two broad categories: Mapping and Non-mapping. A non-mapping GPS system typically shows your location, the time, compass heading, height from sea level, the strength of the signals being picked up, and the position of different satellites. A mapping handheld GPS system also displays maps in addition to the other features. A basic handheld GPS unit can e had for $100-$150.
