Best Handheld Outdoor GPS unit - Updated for the Winter 2020, Christmas 2020 and Spring 2021

Mon 12th October 2020

As we approach the end of 2020 and looking forward to the start of 2021 we are again looking at the best handheld Outdoor GPS unit.

We again will look at the best budget GPS unit, best top end GPS unit and large screen GPS unit on the market.

I very much appreciate many people have personal preferences, but after teaching people how to use GPS units for many years and of course using all the units currently on the market I have put together my personal best buys for each of the categories.

Please do feel free to leave your own comments below and if you are interested in a GPS unit please do fill in a short form to get a personalised recommendation.
