Default GPS device required for trek

Hi guys,
Me and my friends are going for a trek in Western ghatson Dec 12th. I was looking for a GPS receiver which helps in tracking our way. If anyone of you have this device and willing to rent it for few days please let me know.

Look in the classifieds. There was one hand held GPS unit for sale a few months back. Look it up if its still available.

Get a waterproof garmin unit, a Vista HcX or the likes.
Some models even have scout mode where you can mark a perimeter, but almost all of them offer tracking.
I have used my Lowrance quite a few times, once even a heavy rain on a trek, and it works like a charm.
Make sure you get a unit which is waterproof upto 3 feet or something.
Also do not use rechargable batteries, but get good Duracell for your unit, most units last 12-14 hours on a pair of batteries.
