France is a very big place and sometimes looking at a map is not enough to get you to your location. This is why you should invest in a GPS unit while you are camping in France.
GPS stands for global positioning satellite. Since there are various models now in the market, it is best to know what is involved in buying it.
Perhaps the most important thing to ask yourself when you are planning to buy a GPS unit is to decide how much you are willing to pay for it The more expensive it is, naturally the more features it has but sometimes just the basics is what you need.
Your GPS unit must be portable and lightweight so you won’t have a hard time carrying it when there are also other things inside your backpack
So it is easy to look at, get one that has a large screen. Although this will cost more compared to other units, most models are touch screen that are easier to use compared to the push button version.
When looking for a GPS unit, see to it that this has a high sensitivity receiver that can give your position even in heavily forested or steep terrain.
Get one that also has audible directions. With that, you will know how many yards are left before you have to turn or what to do if ever you miss a turn.
