Re: Handheld GPS differences
Touchscreen concerns me although some quick research suggests it's resistive. Does anyone know for sure?
The Oregon and Dakota touchscreens are resistive.
Con: They require more pressure than capacitive to register a tap, and are therefore not suitable for typing long chains of characters.
Pro: They respond to taps from a gloved finger.
I confirmed that my Oregon works fine when I am wearing a glove. Obviously, thinner gloves will give better resolution for your taps.
