With snow still on the ground and mercury still dropping in the thermometer, your summer camping trip may be the furthest thing from your mind. That said, handheld GPS units can also come in very handy if you’re going snowmobiling, skiing, or participating in any other outdoor activity.
The crew at Lowrance has just announced a new line of Endura handheld GPS products and these are all meant to survive the great outdoors. They are the Outback, Safari, and Sierra.
The Lowrance Endura Outback is being marketed as a cost-effective GPS product, offering a touchscreen, preloaded sophisticated base map, multiple mounting choices, and microSD slot. It’s economical and scalable.
The Endura Safari is a step up, offering “enhanced situational awareness” by way of a barometric altimeter, trip computer, and electronic compass. It also does the microSD thing to expand upon the preloaded base map.
Last but not least is the touchscreen-equipped Lowrance Endura Safari. The 3D digital compass and barometric altimeter are nice, placing the Sierra as the flagship of the Endura line.
