Special Request, GPS

Hey West Siders, I'm going to be helping Pat (Trail Fanatic) with Mapping this weekend for the M-Triangle project. I have a gps, but am asking a favor of anybody local that I can meet up with Friday or early early Saturday of this week.

I would like to borrow a gps, for Saturday, as a backup in case the one we have has issues.
If you could possibly loan it to me for Saturday............I will treat it better then I do Trail Junkie.


Thank You

I would let you use mine if I thought it would actually get a signal through the tree cover.

It doesn't take an external antenna...that's why I need a new one.

That's why you get the wireless, amplified antenna.

It DOESN'T plug in.

It just receives, amplifies, and rebroadcasts the amplified satellite signal so your unit receives it better and doesn't 'loose signal'.
