GPS for rent?

Hi helpful forum-folks...

Does anyone here have a GPS they'd be willing to rent to me for 2 weeks?

Don't need anything fancy (doesn't even need to be a bike-specific or bike-mounted unit), but I'll be riding in North BC and hiking on the Queen Charlotte Islands...

Basically just need something that tracks where I've been and can set waypoints (Which I think are the two most basic features of a GPS)... I doubt there are maps for where I'll be hiking anyways.

PM me if you can help - thanks for reading... cheers.

Black Berries have build in GPS, and there is a free software that sends out tracking signal to trace where you have been.

you can set it at any interval of time you want to connect to the satellite, every 5min, 10, 15, 30, hour, etc...

i bookmarked the link somewhere i need to find the link

Can't help you with a rental, however a cheaper hand-held model is the eTrex from Garmin. Relatively inexpensive from Canadian Tire.
