5.0 out of 5 stars Useful in any country, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Garmin Foretrex 301 GPS Watch (Electronics)
I bought this for a tour in Afghanistan so I always had a 10 figure military grid in case anything should happen. For that alone it's worth every penny. It also traced my routes taken and distances so I could always find my way back the same safe route as I took. It also has the ability to set way points using grids (without the use of a computer) and gave me bearings, distances to that bearing and an eta at the current pace you're traveling. Extremely useful. Only downside is the digital compass works on the direction of travel so you have to be moving to get a direction. If you turn on the spot, it won't update so I'd advise carrying a compass and map as a minimum and use this to help make you're life a little easier
