Holux GPSport 260 handheld GPS receiver

Holux has a brand new handheld GPS receiver which they just announced at CompuTex 2010. It is called GPSport 260 and it looks quite stylish compared their older GPSport 245 which we reviewed a while ago and liked quite a bit.

The new Holux GPSport 260 has a 1.5″ screen and can act a GPS data logger that can store up to 160K waypoints. The screen will show you real time statistics about your activity which can be stored and viewed in plot or track view.

There’s even the Follow Course feature which lets you plan a trip before you get on your way and can be reversed for the route back to your tent.

Definitely a spanking new feature with Holux GPSport 260 is the ability to create QR code image for coordinates which helps you share waypoints in a whole different way.

Some other features include 3D compass, barometric altimeter, pedometer, 1050mAh rechargeable that can last up to 20 hours. GPSport 260 is IPX 7 waterproof which means it can be under water for up to 30 minutes at one meter depth.

We look forward to reviewing this handheld GPS receiver from Holux.
