I am requesting forum member advice on buying a GPS for my father. Thank you in advance for your advice:
- My father is 72, lives on a large lake in South Carolina (very large lake).
- He kayaks everyday, approximately 15 miles per day, but has done 25 (+) mile day trips.
- He has a custom built 22 ft carbon/Kevlar kayak w/ skeg from a builder in upstate NY.
- I would like to get him a GPS so he can track his speed, average sped, distance, etc. Not really for navigation. My Dad was an avid sailor so he is comfortable navigating and using his small compass.
Do you have any recommendations, I am not looking to waste money, but am willing to spend up to $450 range.
I would really appreciate the thoughts of fellow kayakers on the pros/cons of various GPS models for use with kayak.
