    Default GPS Satellite Maps

    Does anyone have any opinions on the quality of satellite maps on either Garmin or Delorme models? I'm concerned that I buy something and then the imagery is not very detailed....Right now I'm leaning towards one of the Garmin models w/high sensitivity receivers, but I do want to make sure the satellite imagery is detailed enough to be useful...I'll generally be using this around Juneau on Admiralty...

    I bought the garmin skyview and was pretty dissapointed. I am also in juneau and the detail on the mansfield pennisula is not to bad but the detail of the rest of the area is not great when viewed on a computer and when viewed on the e trex 20 is not super useful

    The Delorme that I used was decent, though ran through the batteries pretty quick...

    I should be more specific: the Delorme I used seemed to run through the batteries pretty fast (I was trying to make a trail), but the satellite imagery was pretty helpful. I borrowed it from a friend who said it wasn't available (?) for most of the mansfield peninsula but was available for the rest of Admiralty around Juneau. If I'm stuck between the 2, I guess I'd get a bunch of rechargable batteries and the Delorme.
