"GPS mapping question"

I'm looking for the user friendliest GPS that I can either download or buy SD cards for that show public versus private property.

I'm planing an antelope hunt this fall and when I hunted the unit across the hiway, everything was checkerboard, public/private. A lot of areas I was afraid to hunt because although according to map and GPS, I thought i was good, I didn't want to take a chance.

This new unit has more public BUT I still want the ablility to know for sure if I'm on public.

I've been looking at the Rhinos because of the capibility to see your partners and i hunt with my wife a lot and she's a novice in the woods. But the best, easiest mapping would win over the capibility to see your partner.

Thanks

Garmin and HuntingGPS maps go hand in hand. Buy the bare GPS, download and install the free 24K topos from gps file depot, then add the hunting gps chip for pub/pvt ownership.

Hunter let me know what you decide on i never have owned a GPS but i'm thinking of getting one for the same reasons.

On my Wyoming Deer hunt last year i ran into a couple guys fron Utah and they had one loaded with the property boundry feature.I can see how that could come in real handy in some places.

Does anyone have any experience with the gps maps sold by huntinggpsmaps.com. I'm particularly interested in how accurate the private land maps are. Anyone have any 1st hand experience?

I have used these maps in montana and colorado. I will not go hunting without them. Eastern montana is checkerboarded with private and most landowners were not happy with tresspassers. Me and a freind were able to hunt coyotes and deer with ease navigating the public lands. Other than my rifle, I never leave without my GPS. We figured it was accurate to about 7 feet, testing it on existing fencelines(unsure how accurate the fences were). After visiting with a landowner about his property lines he for one let us off the hook of tresspassing and then asked where we got the maps so he could get one.

i just bought the garmin oregon 550t and love it so far. this sucker is simple to use. i was just looking at those maps for idaho and think i will buy it. you also get free updates for one year. these maps will show you everything about the properties, including the owners names. i think its about $20 bucks to update each year after that, if you want to stay current. they also have free maps too. just downloaded the idaho game units map. i believe this can be used as an overlay on an existing topo map in your device.
