GPS for trails... what do you use?

Hi...

Wanted to here from people as to suggestion for a GPS unit.
Couple things. Looking for it to be a good unit for riding trails.
Preprogram it, and still add waypoints on the way. Prefer color
screen, Monochrome screens bother me. Other thing would be
nice if i could use it on the sled too.

Like that, am going to jump over to the website.

Do you know if this will be possible:

I have several GPS trails already in google earth that I can export from there.
Can i import them into this unit and overlay the existing maps?

That defender case looks pretty beefy. But it's the screen that worries me the most. Or getting it wet.


What app(s) are you using?
