    Overland GPS on a budget

    I'm looking at a GPS system for an overland trip next summer. I've got around $200 to spend on this. Any of y'all have any suggestions? (I'll have the GAIA app but I need a GPS unit other than my phone.)

    Using GAIA without cell service

    I'm new to using the GAIA app but was playing with it today while on an airplane from San Jose to LA. I thought it was supposed to be able to use the GPS even without cell service to track a route. I started recording a track during take off in San Jose. My location icon didn't move from San...
