Preferred Antenna Type...
I am researching GPS receivers and am narrowing the field down. One difference, that seems major, is the antenna type - "patch antenna" vs "quad helix antenna". I will be using the GPS receiver for geocaching, hiking, bicycling, driving and to mark points of interest I may want to visit later.
Which do you prefer, particularly in wooded areas (Ozark Nat'l Forest, Ouachita Nat'l Forest, Burns Park, etc.)? Are there advantages to one over the other? Is it worth paying the extra $$ for the "quad helix antenna"?
