GPS 66st

Might just be an upgrade from the 62st I'm using.

Of course, I just received my new 64sc this afternoon!

I was thinking an upgraded Inreach next with better GPS functionality. Release surprised me.

66 doubles internal memory, so tracks/routes/waypoints are significantly increased. Almost 1/2 inch diagonally larger screen. The included Birdseye is a huge benefit. Weather reports and the adoption of stringent durability standards. Even the pricing is within boundaries of similar units.

Only downsides are size and weight, and those are fractional increases.

PS: Ooops it weighs less! bh

Nice.

Loving my 64St. Gonna be awhile before I upgrade again.

Uh, boy... I think folks know I like to jump on the shiny, new stuff early. Might soon be a 64st out there sometime on the forums...

Hey Schweady, let me know if you plan on unloading your 64st. I'm looking to upgrade from my Etrex. Thanks!

I'll try to remember you if that happens. I usually have put my 'discards' up in the For Sale Forum here. Actually nothing at all wrong with the 64st, and the new features on the 66st are fairly minimal, just looking for a deal. But, as usual, most electronics -- esp gps units -- are excluded from the best sales.
