First GPS to purchase ?


By thesprocket26 - Posted on 25 September 2014

I don't know a thing about GPS units. Right now I'm running on brain matter and printed google map pages. Can anyone recommend a basic unit to me? It doesn't have to be touch screen, find me the closest Burger King, or monitor my heartrate or hertz of my motorcycle. I think I like the handheld style rather than the large color screens. I guess it would be nice to be able to upload and edit gpx files as those seem to be what this group uses. Is gpx specific to a brand or is it a universal style of file? Thanks in advance! ---Matt
