All who wander might not be lost, but knowing your location is never a bad idea, either. That’s a cinch with Garmin’s Oregon 550t GPS unit ($600). The key to this high-end handheld is its big color touch-screen. It’s easy to read in direct sunlight and allows for quick  toggling between functions, which include compass, altitude, trip calculator and preloaded topo maps. The detailed maps allow you to precisely pinpoint where you are. And with a built-in camera that geo-tags each photo, you can now indisputably prove where you’ve been.
