My name is Shunsuke Furukawa, living in London.
I have a few question about item for mountain climbing.

I am a beginner for climbing who looking for more experience
and I would like to purchase some GPS tool for the mountain.
I just wondering if you could give me your professional opinion about
what kind of GPS I should look at, e.g) important features/information to have, size etc.

I appreciate if you could let me know about this as I don't know much things about it.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and many thanks in advance!

Small and relatively cheap and only use in emergencies.

Book on a map reading course so hopefully you wont need to use the GPS

In reply to Shunsuke Furukawa:
Garmin products are excellent, but will always be expensive. I advise you to equally consider investing in a navigation course and a 'learn to use a gps' course. Having a map, compass and GPS means nothing if you don't know how to use them in a real mountain environment. Best wishes.
