I've never used a gps, and don't know much about them. What features do you guys look for in one, or consider necessary? I've seen what looks like some good deals in the classifieds here, but I still have some other gear to buy as well. Just trying to figure out what I'm looking at spending. Thanks.

Honestly, one of the features I noticed I like having when I compared my gps to a buddy's was an active compass which could give you a bearing. I have the Garmin etrex 30x and his garmin etrex 30 did not have this. You had to walk to get a bearing. Kind of a pain to decide which route to take... Other than that, just go get your hands on some units and see what you like about each when you're using/holding them.

After that, get the onxmaps chip for wherever you're hunting. It shows private/public land. Pretty important in some cases.
