    The satmap 10 is a good bit of kit the last thing i want in the hills is my phone on which people can call me on . I keep my phone off just in case there is a need for a full battey for an unexpectedevent.

    Most normal people will need to check wthere they are at some point and a gps will do it veryquickly don`t nock it

    I go out into the hills with just a needle andleaf compass,a thumbnail sketch of the UK and wear a hessian sack proofed with condor tears. Raaaar!

    Seriously though, carrying a gps as backup makes total sense, another tool to get you out of trouble if needed.Mountain Rescue Teams carry and use them.

    But OMers like to keep the old skills alive. Unfortunately, they don't get out much - too busy chopping wood for the fire, growing oats, milking the cow, darning socks, etc. I use my map and compass as a backup to the GPS on my phone (and a bicycle in the boot in case my car breaks down on the way to the hills..... )
