You can justify the cost of a Garmin device by using it for other activities. Such as hiking. Even in the Mojave desert's Death Valley. Then when I take the unit to my computer, and empty the data onto Garmin Connect, I can link to Google Earth and kind of watch where I traveled.
Last year the Tour of California stage was finishing up in Palm Springs up the Tramway's steep climb. The Garmin allows me to capture my own attempt to that same climb, albeit much slower.
