Handheld GPS devices help you find your way back, however far you’ve strayed from the beaten path. By connecting to satellites in order to use the Global Positioning System, a handheld GPS device is able to pinpoint your location with incredible accuracy. This is useful for navigating your way to or from somewhere, sharing your location with someone or for letting the emergency services know where you are.
The Global Positioning System works to triangulate your position by calculating how long different satellites take to respond to your signal. If you’re hiking or backpacking in areas with unreliable, or non-existent, cell phone signal, make sure you take one of the best handheld GPS devices with you.
