Why a GPS mapping android smarthphone?
Most android smartphone’s nowadays are GPS compatible and so if you already have a handset then downloading one of the many GPS mapping apps on to it is probably your best bet. However, if you’re a keen hiker or walker without a smartphone then purchasing one with an inbuilt OS mapping system saves a lot of hassle.
OS mapping apps range from £20-70 depending on how feature-packed the apps are, which can get rather pricey if you consider the costs of the initial handset and the monthly tariff. Then at the very top end of the scale there are the high spec handheld GPS units, e.g. Garmin, which can cost around £400.
There are very few of these android smartphones about that have inbuilt GPS mapping so it could be a fairly cheap starting point for handheld OS mapping.
The GPS TX3 smartphone is available for £279, however you can get up to £50 off that price if you trade in a GPS unit worth up to £50. Pre-order now and receive a FREE PowerBank PB50 portable charger worth 40.00.
