It depends on the type of surveying you do. For stop-start urban
surveying with heavy building cover, you have a point. But I don't do
that much of that, and if I do, I prefer to use the Geko.
For long country roads, motorways and the like, with a near-constant
speed, good visibility and comparatively few turns, then the eTrex
algorithm is pretty good - and that describes most of my surveying.
Plus it makes economic use of the limited memory, especially if you're
away from a computer for a few days. I really don't want to start
taking my iBook around in my panniers!
