Bulls#($. I have the newest Garmin eTrex (a really good GPS), and it caks in deep woods. I'm talking about 20% light condition and you've got 5 layers between you and the sky. Yours will probably work fine in North American woods (mine does), but the Jungle is a whole different ballgame. Here's a test for you. Go to the deepest layer of the deepest underground parking lot you can find, and turn on your GPS. If you get a signal there, you'll maybe be able to get a signal in jungle conditions.

Underground garage?? Nah, I'd rather try a real world test and go banana hunting (and snake hunting?) with Tog!

Good idea for an absent minded car park-er. (Doesn't sound vulgar I hope?)

Harv, I don't use the GPS, OA is super great especially in the deepest of jungles!

When I come to visit I still bring my GPS as I think you'll leave my fat butt in the dust (or is it mud at the bottom of the hill?)!!! I'll catch up to you eventually!
