    Tech question of gps

    Hello all, I started thinking about the gps apps for phone and then the stand alone units. I just wondering if there is no cell phone coverage in the desert then the gps downloaded on the phone is useless no? The handheld units use satellite signals as opposed to cell towers or am I wrong about the apps on phones. I want to buy a gps unit for mapping a claims' long/lat. coordinates. Thanks for any all info.

    Satellite based gps is definitely the way to go.
    The phone will not function when way out in the sticks.

    I"ve wondered the same thing. I think standard8 is probably right on.
