Choosing a
Popular Recreational GPS Receiver

GPS receivers vary tremendously in features and price.  Those below are divided into Basic, Points-of-Interest, and Mapping categories.   Each category starts with a description of the general features for that category.   Within each category, GPS receivers are sorted by price with the least expensive first.  Choose a GPS receiver with the features you need at a price that fits your budget.  All these receivers are Factory NEW, built by the most reputable companies in the business and come with full factory warranties.

All of our GPS receivers, software and accessories are Factory NEW with full One Year Garmin Factory Warranty.
4X4BOOKS.com is a Factory Authorized Garmin Dealer.

Basic GPS Receivers
These GPS receivers do include 12 parallel channel speed and accuracy crucial to tracking GPS satellites in heavy tree cover.  These Basic GPS units can be connected to a personal computer to upload/download waypoints or for use with PC based map software such as the ones developed by DeLorme, Garmin (for Garmin GPS receivers), Wildflower, All Topo Maps, and National Geographic/Trails Illustrated, National Geographic State Series  (Earthmate works only with DeLorme software).  These GPS receivers do not come with built-in maps or points-of-interest databases nor can CD-ROM maps be downloaded to them.  They are good value for the dollar, basic GPS units that will report your location in Latitude and Longitude and store waypoints, routes, and tracks just as well as the more expensive GPS units.
