Managing Your GPS Waypoints

Most GPS receivers sold on the market today will hold 500 waypoints in memory.  These waypoints are your saved/recorded geographic locations that you have saved into the receiver's memory.  A waypoint could be the saved location of your camp or truck.

So, just how many  waypoints should you have saved?  On my GPS I probably have about 5 and 0 would be better. 

I like to keep my navigation simple and having hundreds of saved waypoints is can be a headache.

Read my article about waypoint management in Dump the Junk.
