|More information:|I'm a GPS fanatic, because it helps me figure out where I am at and what direction I need to go as I easily get lost.
(I feel very sorry for those that ask me for directions. They have a better chance of getting to their destination blindfolded.)
I own 5 GPSes. They are all dedicated systems; not those that are integrated in smartphones. I have a TomTom for my car. I have 3 Garmins for my hiking/climbing, biking, and geocaching excursions. And finally, I have a Trimble for my research (I'm a scientist in training). My Trimble R4 is my favorite because it is insanely accurate but insanely expensive and cumbersome to carry around (the antennae), so I don't use it for recreation. My next favorite is my Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx.
My personal goal on Mountain Project is to provide GPS coordinates (WGS84 datum) for the base of each of the climbing site/route I do. All of my coordinates and altitude records that I provide on Mountain Project is taken from my Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx unit. I record the 20-min averaged mark (accuracy of 1 standard deviation), so it is the most accurate as any non-research/consumer grade GPS can do.
