I don't carry a GPS at all. I know how to use a compass and a map. Anything electrical can and will eventually fail but a magnetic compass will always work. Plus, and many people don't know this, the US military owns the GPS satellites. When they released the technology to the public they encrypted it and then put a bypass around it so the civilian world can use it. But in the time of need all they have to do is push a few buttons and cancel the bypass and all civilian GPS units as well as those sold to other nations become worthless.
