Which GPS do you recommend for the Camino de Santiago?

The question was:

I got a private message about what GPS I use, and thought I’d post it here.
What I want for my trips is a GPS with:
• Long battery life, preferably runs on AA batteries
• Waterproof
• Daylight readable screen
• Ease of loading multiple maps and tracks
• Enough memory to store each days travel for several weeks
• Strong antennae and no need for internet connection
• A good bike handlebar mount
Not too heavy or expensive

There are apps to make a phone do about anything, but they flunk on the battery and waterproof criteria. I hear they tend to lose signal too.

Do I need a cellphone on my Camino de Santiago?

Do I need a phone on my Camino de Santiago?

The question was:

I’m considering whether to bring my iphone on the Frances route this April. I’d like not to.
To the extent I need to communicate with home, I can do it from villages along the way at internet cafes.

I suppose my biggest concern is that I may need it to call ahead for reservations each day. Thoughts?

Can I bring my CPAP machine on the Camino de Santiago?

CPAP machine on the Camino de Santiago

The question was:

I am planning to walk the El Camino Frances beginning of June. I can’t leave home without my cpap. This is gonna require electricity since batteries are way to heavy. Has anyone else traveled with their cpap? Do the albergues offer beds close to electrical outlets or is this wishful thinking.
