NewHunter, I know very little about GPS's, However I did do some researching for you on this particular iFinder Go GPS and I'm afraid it doesn't have very good ratings or customer reviews about it. most reviews agree there's is no customer support at all and that iFinder Go model keeps freezing up causing you to have to remove the batteries to reset the unit. I would probably pass on it if it were me. I'm Sorry to pass on negative input but I'll feel better telling you rather than have you lost in the woods carrying around a little yellow plastic box...
Good Luck
