I don't have one, but I consider buying a Garmin. I use DeLorme Topo Map software and I mark critical points along the route.
This way I can use GPS to verify that I am still on the route. I was wheeling around Emigrant Gap last year and was unable to
find the right turn to Baltimore Lake, because there were many more Jeep trails than map showed. Having coordinates of that
turn beforehand and then using GPS would make things much easier. I don't think that one needs a GPS with built-in map. The
quality of that map is poor anyway.
