Best batteries for an Outdoor Garmin GPS unit

Best batteries for an Outdoor Garmin GPS unit

A common question we get asked here at the Outdoor GPS Shop is what are the best batteries for an Outdoor Garmin GPS unit.

Because there is never a straight answer there some questions you need to ask.

1. Does you GPS have a built-in power cell (units like the GPSMAP 66i, GPSMAP86s, GPSMAP86i and the Garmin Montana range.

If the answer is yes, you can charge your unit both from the mains or by using a portable power pack like the –

– Goal Zero Venture 30 Power Bank – more
or the
– Goal Zero Sherpa 100 PD Power Bank – more

In my experience Goal Zero are the market leaders in outdoor power. Both these products above can be charged by mains power of with a solar panel if you are heading ‘off grid’ –

– Goal Zero Venture 30 Solar Kit – Solar Panel and Recharger – more
or
– Goal Zero Nomad 7 Plus Solar Panel – stand-alone solar panel (plug into an existing power pack) – more

2. Does your Outdoor Garmin GPS run on AA batteries?

The majority of Garmin Outdoor GPS units are powered by 2 x AA batteries.

The reason for this is then you can easily double your power time by taking a further 2 AA batteries in your rucksack, an easy solution.

BUT, not all AA batteries are good batteries to power your Garmin GPS unit with. If you buy cheap disposable batteries, they, frankly, will not last very long, and throwing away the batteries will also have an environmental impact.

Therefore, you really should be powering your Outdoor Garmin GPS unit with rechargeable AA batteries. Depending on if you are walking just day walks or multiple days there are several battery options to choose from.

Day walks – best batteries for your Garmin GPS unit

The assumption for your day walks is that you will have access to mains power before your walk, so you can charge

– Best budget option – Energizer Battery Charger 1 Hour inc 4 batteries – more

Which did a test a couple of years ago and they rated these as the best rechargeable batteries currently on the market. In one hour of charging you have got yourself two batteries to power you for one days walking and a second ‘backup’ set just in case.

– Panasonic Eneloop Charger, Including 4 x AA batteries – more

Over the past year, we have had lots of customers raving about these batteries, so we gave them a go ourselves. In our eyes, they are worth the money.

This battery charger charges each battery cell individually, so if a cell is 40% full it will charge it the further 60% then stop charging it. It treats every battery cell individually.

If you can afford them you will not be disappointed.

Long-distance walks – best batteries for your Garmin GPS unit

If you are doing a multiple-day walk, do not have access to mains power or just don’t fancy carrying a battery charger with a three-pin plug on the back in your rucksack the option to go for is the –

– Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus – Recharger – more

This you can charge from a USB plug (like the one you more than likely use to charge your smartphone), alternatively, you can also charge this from a solar panel.

– Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Solar Recharging Kit with Nomad 7 Panel – more

The great thing about the Goal Zero Guide 10 plus is not only charges 4 AA batteries but if you leave those batteries in it also becomes a power pack that you can charge your phone or other electronic devices with. Therefore a top tip is to buy both a Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus and a second set of 4 x AA batteries.

Then you can charge your four batteries, put two in your unit, two in you rucksack as your backup. Then charge another 4 batteries in the Guide 10 and use that then as a power pack.
To do this all you need to buy is a further –

– 4 x AA rechargeable batteries – more

How long do batteries last in a Garmin Outdoor GPS unit?

The six-million-dollar question, how long will my batteries last in your Outdoor Garmin GPS unit.

Aa good set of batteries should enable you to get a good day walking under your belt, this would be 7 – 8 hours.

I know Garmin says you will get twice as long as that, but frankly, if you are using your GPS properly, to navigate you I would expect a good 7 – 8 hours of battery life.

There are a number of things you can do to extend your battery life on an Outdoor Garmin GPS unit. GPS Training created this short video that will help you look at how to preserve your batteries on a Garmin Oregon GPS unit.

GPS unit, GPS watch or mobile phone app

Outdoor GPS unit or mobile GPS app

Outdoor GPS unit or mobile GPS app on your mobile phone, which will meet your requirements best.

Each year people come to us here at the Outdoor GPS Shop and ask, what is the difference between a standalone Outdoor GPS Unit or Mobile GPS App, which will meet your requirements best.

This is a very good question as it is important as when you are heading out that you have the correct choice for your needs.

Here at Outdoor GPS Shop we only sell handheld GPS units and GPS watches but the truth of the matter is one of these options may not be the best fit for you, in fact, a GPS app you can download and use on your mobile phone may be a better option.

What this article is going to do is explain the pros and cons of each type of navigational experience in an honest transparent manner. This way by the end you will be able to identify which is the best fit for you.

Before I start I must thank you for everybody who helped me put this article together, including friends from the Outdoor Gear UK Facebook page and also Lindley Chambers, from Challenge Running (safety co-coordinator for the Spine races, both summer and winter editions).

Mobile Phone app

Some examples (in no order) – Viewranger, OS App, Memory Map, Google maps

1. Battery life

One of the key things to think of if you are going to download and use a GPS app on your mobile phone is battery life. As we have all experienced, when the screen on your smartphone is lit it uses plenty of battery, also if you are out of mobile phone signal or out in cold conditions this can also drain your battery.

Yes, there are solutions to this, you could take a power pack and charge your mobile phone halfway through the day, this would always be recommended as if your phone goes flat and you need it in an emergency, the phone could literally save your life.

Therefore, if you are thinking of using your mobile GPS app please do think about a backup battery to keep your phone charged ‘just in case’.

Another good top tip if you use your smartphone as a GPS put it in airplane mode, this will still let the  GPS work but it doesn’t keep using a lot of energy hunting for a signal in poor reception areas. Also keeping your smartphone close to your body in very cold temperatures can also help preserve the battery life.

2. Durability

The second factor when using your mobile phone outdoors is durability and what happens if it rains.

Many of us have accidentally dropped our phones and had to pay for a replacement screen, a modern smartphone is frankly a very expensive high-quality screen so we need to protect it.

The other thing to think of is what will you do if it rains. Some of the more expensive smartphones are now fully waterproof, I know I have done some underwater footage with my smartphone and it survived.

You need to check with your manufacturer if your GPS is waterproof.

A good solution to both of these problems is putting your GPS in something like an aquapac. These are waterproof pouches that you can still use the touchscreen on your smartphone and also it will help protect your screen, Also they make your phone easier to handle and less chance of your dropping your phone when outdoors.

If the weather is cold you may struggle to use the touch screen on your smartphone, if this is the case you may want to get some gloves that have the small pads on so you can use a touchscreen with the gloves on. Another alternative is to use a touch screen stylus on a piece of cord.

3. GPS Fix on your mobile phone

Sometimes smartphones can struggle to get a fix on where you are. If your phone is struggling to get a GPS fix make sure that you have the GPS switched on, iPhones refer to this as – location services. As well as using the GPS the phone will use the mobile phone network 9if you have one to give you an accurate position of where you are.

4. Which mobile phone GPS apps

This is not a review of the different mobile phone GPS apps, that may come later, but some examples are Viewranger, OS App, Memory Map and Google maps

The key thing is mobile phone GPS apps come in three categories and it is the third of these we need to use if wanting maps when in the outdoors.

– Map only Apps

Google maps fall into this category, many of us have used an app like this to navigate in an urban environment, and it is a great navigational experience in the town and city, far better than any outdoor GPS unit will ever be. It streams the map data over a fast-urban mobile phone network.

But these should not be used in a rural setting, the maps need to be streamed live so if no network, no maps and the maps don’t show footpaths and bridleways which is what we are going to walk along in the countryside. They also will not give you a grid reference.

– Maps and navigational Apps

Some of these apps are like a standalone GPS unit, the key thing is to choose an app that can be used offline. Some of the free or entry-level GPS apps have to be online to download the map, so just like Google maps above, no mobile phone signal, no maps.

So you need to use a GPS app that you can download the maps onto your phone before you head off, the maps will be large file sizes so again make sure you have the memory capacity on your phone to store these downloaded maps.

What better excuse to delete all those pictures, videos and music tracks from your smartphone? You can’t beat a good tidy up.

– Position Only Apps

These mobile apps are very limited in their functionality, but they are are for one thing, to give you a position fix. In the UK we will be looking for a Grid Reference, or British National Grid to give it the correct name.

It is not bad practice to have one of these apps on your mobile phone as a backup, either to your standalone GPS device or your maps and navigational app described above.

Many of these apps are free and vary in accuracy, so download one and test it before you head off. I know we have experienced some very varied results in these kinds of apps.

5. So, to summarise

Over recent times many Mountain rescue teams, rightly, have expressed concerns about heading into the countryside with just a mobile phone app to navigate. BUT if you are using a paper map as your main form of navigation and your mobile phone app is just for backup and just to confirm you are where you think you are and as long as you have addressed the issues in points one and two (battery like and durability) and you have chosen a map that can be used offline these apps are a great introduction into the world of outdoor GPS navigation.

I have also met a number of people that use an old smartphone as their GPS, take the SIM card out and download the GPS app onto it at home using the wifi. Then as your unit is not searching for a mobile phone signal it should improve the battery life considerably. But please be aware, if you are using an old phone the battery life may be poorer as the battery may be coming to the end of its like anyway.

Often GPS apps are cheap, so there is no harm in downloading one and giving it a go.

6. When I asked Lindley Chambers, from Challenge Running (safety co-coordinator for the Spine races, both summer and winter editions), when is a phone acceptable he kindly gave the following advice

  • It’s one of those “It depends” scenarios.

If you cant read a map but can use your phone with an app like Viewranger or OS locate/maps then that’s better than not having anything.

If you are on a tourist path with lots of other people in good weather on an easy to find route then no big deal, after all we see people all the time on paths with a phone and no map and they are usually ok.

If you are competent with an app and your phone or your GPS watch and know how long the battery lasts and how to use them then great as long as you know your limits and the limit of the kit you are using. But many don’t.

  • If you are going somewhere in bad or changeable weather with higher risk and more remote then a phone really should not be your only means of navigation.

Always think “what if”, if you drop your phone or it gets wet or runs out of power then what’s the plan?

Standalone Outdoor GPS device

Some examples – Garmin and SatMaphandheld units and GPS watches

1. Durability

The key thing with a dedicated GPS device (whether a watch or a handheld unit) is the durability.

These things are meant for the outdoors, you can drop them, submerge them in water and hit them with a hammer and the don’t break. Before you ask, yes, I have hit a GPS screen with a hammer.

2. Cost

The big downside of a standalone GPS unit is the cost, and this is where the GPS app on your mobile phone wins over. If you are a summer walker and don’t tend to venture out if the weather is bad and you always take a paper map, why not use the GPS app on your mobile phone.

Yes, you can get a basic GPS for a couple of hundred pounds but really you should be thinking of spending around £500.00 for a decent GPS unit or watch. We could get into the debate that the latest iPhone or Galaxy phone is twice that much if you buy it outright, but many people are shielded from that cost by buying these devices on a monthly contract.

3. Offline maps

With and dedicated GPS device the maps are all offline, either on a memory card or stored on the internal memory.

The other nice thing is if you are heading overseas you can just pop in the map card for that country, you change a few settings, as I suspect giving the rescue services a British National Grid in Portugal may not go down too well.

4. True navigational device

A dedicated GPS system gives you a great ‘navigational experience’, this is the car sat nav experience but off-road.

When you are navigating a pre-planned walk your GPS will be telling you how long it is until your next turn and how far and at what time you are going to get to your final destination. If you do plan your walks beforehand on your PC or a mobile phone app (now that’s ironic isn’t it), to me the maps on the screen are just a background image as you are following an arrow telling you where you should be going.

I am amazed how many people get hung up about the maps, I say to these people, I don’t get in your BMW and tell you how great your maps are on your SatNav compared to by trust Tom Tom, I don’t really care I just want the thing to tell me to turn left in three miles.

The same also should be looked at when buying an Outdoor GPS, the maps are there for you to plan your route on, but when you are being navigated along that activity the maps are frankly just a background image.

5. Power and batteries

This to me is one of the key things. Many outdoor GPS devices have either phenomenal battery life if they have built-in batteries or often many devices run on AA batteries so you can change them if they go flat.

Some of the new GPS watches have power management modes so you can shut off non-essential things on your watch and the battery life turns into days and weeks.

These things are made to run day after day and if you are camping or off-grid, that’s not a problem as you can either just pop another set of batteries in many of the Outdoor GPS devices.

6. Dedicated device

I believe you should have a dedicated device, I love my smartphone and I am the person who goes and buys the latest iPhone outright from the Apple store and loves it to bits, but when out in the hills on that wet misty day my smartphone is packed away in a waterproof Aquapac in my rucksack, just in case.

My standalone buttoned GPS unit is on my rucksack strap on a backpack tether, soaking through and with my thick winter gloves on I can use it and I know this thing is going to power on whatever the elements throw at it.

7. When I asked Lindley Chambers, from Challenge Running (safety co-coordinator for the Spine races, both summer and winter editions), why an outdoor GPS unit should be used he kindly gave the following advice and also he touched on some other key points

  • Durability and reliability – Outdoor GPS unit or Mobile GPS App, handhelds are generally built for the job and are reliable and waterproof and tough. Depending on models they are easier to use in bad weather and can be used with gloves on etc.
  • Crossover of safety roles, if you use your watch to record the run or route then also relying on it to be your emergency location device to get you a grid or navigate with is putting all your eggs in one basket which has risks. If you use your phone as navigation and your emergency call facility again too many eggs in one basket. If your phone or watch goes down you loose everything.
  • We cant discuss the merits of each device and capabilities between watches and phones and handhelds, there is so much crossover in function. Handhelds have similar capability and function so on events this is what we require participants to use.
  • Learn to read a map and use a compass well, even if you mostly use a dedicated GPS device or your phone or watch.
  • Know how to use your kit, like the map and compass any electronic device is useless if you don’t know how to use it well. I spend time teaching this stuff and it amazes me how many people think you just take it out of a box and use it.
  • Think about battery life in cold and wet weather, phones are crap with gps running constantly, think 4 hours for an iphone to maybe 8 hours for a top android phone. Touch screens are rubbish in the wet and cold. How do you charge it?
  • If you don’t practice with any of this stuff often it’s pointless how good it is.
  • Know how to call for help and text 999.

These are Lindley’s thoughts on what he takes on his activities – Outdoor GPS unit or Mobile GPS App

  • Local routes or familiar areas of low risk and shorter duration.

I am unlikely to take a map as I either have a rough idea or I have my phone as a back-up GPS with Viewranger on it. I will primarily use my GPS watch for navigation and GPS location in an emergency. I have a phone that I know will last for 3-4 days with GPS on that is fully waterproof and drop tested.

  • Longer routes or unfamiliar areas with medium risk

I will take my GPS watch still probably as a primary source and use my phone as an occasional check or overview, my watch can load routes I have planned onto it. I will probably take my handheld Garmin as an emergency back up with a fresh set of batteries.

  • Very long or high risk routes including multi-day stuff

All of the above plus a map and compass and most likely my spot tracker too. I would still usually use my GPS watch on a planned route and my handheld or phone on a route I have not planned or maybe be practising with my map and compass.

I hope this helped – Outdoor GPS unit or mobile GPS app

As I said at the beginning I have tried to be as impartial as I can, it is important as when you are heading out for that walk or cycle ride that you have the correct choice for your needs.

Here at the Outdoor GPS Shop we only sell handheld GPS units and GPS watches but the truth of the matter is one of these options may not be the best fit for you, in fact a GPS app you can download and use on your mobile phone may be a better option. The choice is yours – Outdoor GPS unit or mobile GPS app

Hill skills and planning

Whatever your planned activity for the day or multiple days, be honest with yourself about your hill skills and planning for both you and your fellow walkers, it’s all about having the knowledge, fitness, and ability.

We all like to kid ourselves that we are fitter, or indeed more capable than we are. It pays to be honest with yourself and why not look at improving your planning and hill skills.

Plan before you go and carry the correct gear – hill skills and planning

Carry a map and compass and know how to use them. Compliment these with your Outdoor GPS unit or GPS watch. And don’t forget those spare batteries for your GPS unit and backup power pack for your phone and watch.

Every year thousands of people end up calling for help because they are lost and/or tired. Nowadays paper maps may seem unnecessary, but they are light to carry and their batteries don’t run out of charge!

For simple guides to map reading and using a compass check out the GPS Training online resource (free course)

Plan for the least able member of your group – hill skills and planning

For example, if reaching the summit is going to be a challenge then switch to a lower level walk that you can all enjoy and achieve comfortably.

If you are out with friends please do respect them. You are not going out to prove your ability you are going out to build friendships so don’t push them beyond their capabilities.

Know your limits – hill skills and planning

If the weather, ground conditions or route are beyond your capabilities or equipment, consider your options. It’s OK to choose a more suitable route or to turn back. Remember to allow enough time for the least able member of your group.

Plan your escape routes, how will you get off the planned route at x, y and z if the weather suddenly changes.

If you’re doing something new or going somewhere new…

Why not go with a qualified guide or instructor, think about signing up for some training?

If you are looking for GPS training our partners at GPS Training have some great courses, both online and physical GPS training courses around the country.

It costs nothing to plan and think about your adventure ahead before you set off and gaining further training is fun, like-minded people wanting to gain new skills.

Check the weather and be prepared

Weather in the hills – plan before you head off

Weather in the hills – what to do before you head into the hills.

Yes, in the UK we are a little obsessed with the weather. But keeping an eye on the weather is essential when planning your walk in the hills.

When heading out into the hills being prepared for the weather can make a big difference as to how you feel at the end of the day.

Be flexible

There’s no shame in changing your plans.

Choose a different route or turn back if the forecast doesn’t look too clever; if the weather closes in unexpectedly or if the conditions turn out to be more difficult than you’d expected.

If you are heading for the hills and realise that reaching the summit is going to be a challenge, then switch to a lower level walk that you can all enjoy and achieve comfortably.

Check the latest weather forecast before you set off and alter your plans if need be

Check the weather forecast – the Met Office (https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/) is a good place to start.

Remember to check conditions for different points on your route, for example, if you are heading for the hills find out how cold and windy it will be at the top of your climb, and also what level the cloud base will be.

Don’t forget to take into consideration the wind chill factor.

Many of the new generation GPS units will give you a live weather update as you are ‘out in the field’, so this can be invaluable so you can alter your route if the forecast and weather conditions change.

Don’t forget, the sun sometimes shines!

If this is the case don’t forget your sunscreen and sun hat!

And don’t forget your Outdoor GPS unit.

Planning is key, plan your route before you head off and transfer this to your Outdoor GPS unit or Multisport GPS watch.

Then whatever the weather brings you will be able to navigate at ease.

Essential walking kit for a walk

Essential walking kit for a walk

If you are heading out into the hills or even on a low-level walk what kit should you be taking with you, what essential walking kit when heading out for a walk? I know these days many people are wanting to walk light, but there are a number of essentials you should be taking with you.

If you think of anything that we have missed, please do let us know.

Clothing

The correct clothing at the very least will make your walk more comfortable, but it could also prevent much worse. Things like waterproofs will help you tackle the elements, but avoiding materials like denim and cotton where possible will help you dry quicker and maintain your body temperature. Lots of thin layers are the key so you can take off and put on as need be.

– Breathable base layer
– Insulating mid-layer
– Walking trousers, not jeans
– Waterproof jacket
– Waterproof over-trousers
– Hats & gloves
– Sun hat
– Rucksack/daypack

Footwear

Arguably the difference between a pleasant walk and an unpleasant walk, getting the right footwear and thus caring for your feet is of the utmost importance.

– Walking boots/shoes. Need to be comfortable and well-fitting
– Walking socks, these must be breathable – Mohair, Marino or other specialist socks

Rucksack essentials

The art of being prepared isn’t just in what you wear, it’s what you take with you to be ready for every eventuality. These can literally make or break a day in the hills for you.

– Fully charged mobile phone in a dry bag, something like an Aquapac
– Map & compass (even if you use GPS)
– Torch or head torch
– Bottled water
– Flask of hot drink
– High energy snacks
– Spare warm clothing
– Spare socks
– Survival bag (just in case)
– Emergency contact details
– First aid kit
– Suncream
– Sunglasses

If you think we have missed anything out of our essential walking kit when heading out for a walk please do let us know.

Best GPS watch for Ultra and Trail running

Best GPS watch for Ultra and Trail Running

The questions we get asked here at the Outdoor GPS Shop are. What is the best GPS watch for Ultra and Trail Running?

The key things to look at when considering a GPS watch for these activities are the following –

1. Good Battery life.

With the recent changes to the Garmin Fenix 6 range of GPS watches you now have the ability to see how various settings and sensors impact the watch’s battery life. This enables you to make battery-extending changes on the fly.

If you are on long ultra runs or trail runs you can switch off sensors and features on and Garmin Fenix 6 watch to prolong battery life.

in the past, this would have been given you as a % of battery life. Frankly is useless, but with the new capabilities on the Garmin Fenix 6 range of GPS watches it actually tells you the hours and minutes you have with your current battery state. By switching on and off various sensors and features on the watch you will this battery time increase or decrease accordingly.

2. Very good durability for the GPS watch and of course it must be waterproof.

Durability is key for the ultra and trail runner.

We would always recommend going for a Sapphire screen if wearing a watch for ultra or trail running.

Sapphire has a value of 9 while diamond has a value of 10 under the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. This means that a Sapphire glass is almost resistant to scratch unless it will come in direct and hard abrasive contact with a diamond. A Sapphire glass screen on an outdoor GPS watch is not only hard but also strong.

Therefore, if you accidentally fall or catch the GPS Watch on a rock the screen will survive and not scratch.

3. What built-in maps to aid navigation do you want in a GPS watch for Ultra and Trail Running.

Garmin Fenix GPS watches (5 plus onwards) come with built-in Topo Active maps.

These are fully digital maps, so as you zoom in you get more information as you zoom out you get less, making them, ideal on the relatively small screen of a GPS watch, compared to a larger handheld GPS unit used when hiking.

An Ordnance Survey map on a GPS watch is frankly not ideal on a GPS watch as the screen is not large enough to accommodate a map made for large paper maps.

The Garmin Topo Active maps on Garmin Fenix GPS watches still show paths, roads, rivers, contours and everything else you would expect from a map, but as they have originated from satellite imagery and locally sourced data you will actually find them to be more accurate than the Ordnance Survey maps on not only a GPS watch but any outdoor GPS unit.

4. An easy to follow navigational experience, even when you are fatigued it is key that it needs to be easy to follow.

To get the best navigational experience on any GPS watch it is best to load it with a course. These are usually .gpx files that event organisers will issue to you before your Ultra or trail running event.

If you are using the GPS watch to navigate you on a training run you can create your own .gpx file on any mapping software including Memory Map, Quo, Anquet and many apps including OS map app, View Ranger and many others.

It is just a case of plotting your training run on one of these mapping software’s or apps and then transferring the .gpx file onto your Outdoor GPS Watch.

Once this is done your GPS watch will navigate you along your ultra or trail run, think of it as a car sat-nav, but off-road.

5. Great features on the GPS watch to aid both training and performance during any race. These will include heart rate and other physiological measurements

These are the things that really make a good Outdoor GPS watch made for Ultrarunning and Trail running stand out.

The built-in technology will measure your cardiorespiratory fitness and aerobic performance capacity.

The ability to see your current fitness level and track changes over time is a game-changer and with all the Garmin GPS watches currently showing recovery times etc it really is a great tool for your training programme.

So, taking all these key points onboard – What is the best GPS watch for Ultra and Trail Running?

Winter safety in the Hills

Hill safety for walkers

What to do if something goes wrong whilst you are in the hills?

During winter a slip or trip out on the hill can be a far more dangerous situation. We need to think about hill safety for walkers. This is very different than the summer months when you can sit and wait in the sun until help arrives.

In winter these situations can develop extremely fast. That’s why it’s important to be prepared when out on the hill.

Below are some tips looking at what to do, so you are prepared on the hill in winter.

Also, we will look at what to do if something goes wrong whilst you are in the hills. Also look at generic hill safety for walkers.

Emergency Kit

In your rucksack it is advised to have a dry bag with some emergency kit.

These should include a whistle, headtorch, spare AA batteries, hand warmers, spare laces, repair tape, spare hat & gloves, foil bag, and a warm emergency layer.

First Aid

Always carry a fully stocked first aid kit on the hill.

This should be full of items for larger problems but it can always be used so smaller issues. So rather than a bag full of small plasters, carry lots of bandages, absorbant pads, blister plasters, and large dressings as well as wipes and gloves.

Help – Phone signal or InReach

Getting help is generally the same in summer or winter, but the need for this to happen quicker is more important in the winter.

Mobile hones generally don’t like the cold, and having to use it is liaise with the Emergency services in the winter months could kill the battery very quickly. There is also the risk that there won’t be phone signal where you are. For this reasons you need to consider carrying a small InReach Mini.

This is a two-way satellite communicator that allows me to send an SOS message in an emergency and has 100% global coverage. The monitoring centre will then get back to you with regular updates on the Emergency Services response, in the UK they will raise Mountain Rescue to aid your rescue. InReach Mini is less than 100g, waterproof, durable and will hold its charge for 1 year in your rucksack.

Be safe this winter whilst Outdoors

Don’t get caught out this Winter when in the outdoors

,Don’t get caught out this Winter when in the outdoors, your GPS will keep you updated about daylight hours.

One of the lesser-known features on Garmin GPS units, is the ability to display the Sunrise and Sunset times at your location. They will even show features such as time in hours until sunset or sunrise. When out walking or running this winter the reassurance of having this information can really enhance your day. Allowing you to enjoy the activity knowing you will not get caught out.

Access this on a handheld unit; There is a Sunrise/Sunset icon on the main menu. This will then give you the Sunrise & Sunset times at your location. Using the menu system you can also change the location it is giving this information for. This is updated live from the satellites, once you are outdoors and it has logged onto the satellites this information will be automatically updated.

On a Garmin Fenix GPS watch;you can get the same information – this is available via the widget screen. If the GPS is not in the use the data comes from the Garmin Connect location, GPS is in use this data is calculated for your location.

If you do get caught out with Sunset times on the hill having an “epic” day – not a problem! Garmin units pack some great features to help with these days.

The GPSMap 66 series now has backlit buttons, seeing them on the hill in dusk is simple and easy and these will automatically activate when the ambient light level drops. If the day really does get extended all Garmin handheld units can or do run on AA batteries. So if you need extra power you can just pop some spare batteries into the unit, all information will be automatically saved.

What is the Best Open Water Swimming GPS Watch?

Over recent years there has been a massive growth in open water swimming and now many of the Garmin GPS units now have a swim feature on. So what is the best Open Water Swimming GPS watch and what are the main features you need to look at.

Before you head off you can plan your ‘course’ on your computer and then follow it if you wish. As you veer from this course the GPS will vibrate so you can swim and let your GPS watch do the navigational job for you. A great navigational experience when swimming.

All the Garmin Instinct and Garmin Fenix 6 GPS Watches now have an open water mode and with these running it will run an open water swim algorithm, possibly making these the best open water swimming GPS watches.

When your arm is under the water you will lose satellite signal so this algorithm smooths this out and gives you both the navigational experience and swim recording experience you are looking for.

As well as navigating when the GPS records you open water swim you get all the stats you would be expecting plus several swimming specific ones such as the average stroke rate as well as the temperature and heart rate which when pulled together with the other stats give you a great overview of your open water swim.

Further Reading and Useful Information;

We have teamed up with GPS Training to put together a online training resource for the Garmin GPS Watches. They take you through all the steps from turning on the Garmin GPS Watch and getting it paired to the Garmin Connect App too putting routes on your Garmin Watch to use for your chosen activity.

You can achieve access to this through the GPS Training Website – https://gpsonlinecourse.co.uk/
