I am new to the site and we are coming up to AK for a trip at the beginning of August 2014. I have been researching GPS units, both Auto and handheld and have myself unsure of what unit to get. I am looking at Garmins exculsively and initially looked at some of the Nuvi models. Then I started thinking of a handheld that I could also use in Auto mode. Several suggestions say get an auto then a seperate handheld for offroad, rural area travel.
If you have experience with GPS units in Alaska, please let me know your experience and any suggestions you may have for units that work well in Alaska.
Thank you very much and Best of Luck to you and yours
