Even though there are a few people who are sure that they can find their way through unknown woods in the dark, the rest of us will need a little help navigating through the wilderness on a camping trip. This is why Top Gear Camping sells the electronics and instruments, which most of us should not plan a camping trip without. We have atmospheric measuring devices, compasses, GPS units, health and fitness instruments, metal detectors and accessories, radios and walkie-talkies, and solar equipment all from the leading brands for sale at discount prices.

A GPS locator is an important tool for any hiker, backpacker, or snowsports enthusiast to have on hand. Even if you think you know the trail, which you are to follow, most experts will agree it can never hurt to have a GPS unit to fall back on in case you lose your way. It is important to remember to keep your GPS unit on at all times when hiking in dense forests because your GPS will usually keep a signal once it is obtained, but it can be hard to locate a satellite signal in heavily forested areas.

While a GPS can usually get you to where you are going, you will often also require a decent compass and a map of the terrain when hiking. A GPS requires that you travel at a minimum of 10 miles per hour in order for the optimal accuracy. Therefore, after determining a general path from a GPS, you may need to use the “old-fashioned” compass and map to find an exact heading. If you are not yet an expert with a compass, we recommend the Orienteering Handbook by Silva to perfect your navigating skills.

Some specialty compasses even come with unique features like split-sighting mirrors to allow you to get superior accuracy when navigating from distant landmarks. Overall, a quality compass is a good tool help keep you on the right track when hiking or backpacking.

Walkie-talkies are also good to have on hand especially when camping with children or in groups. When hiking with a group, it is good to have two-way radios in case you become separated or several group members fall behind. A walkie-talkie may be used to allow children to have their own explorations nearby the campsite, while still being aware of what is going on. Since cell phones do not work in the remote areas where most people camp and hike, walkie-talkies offer a good substitute for a way to stay in contact with other family or group members.

Health and fitness accessories, such as speedometers or accelerometers are useful tools when biking or hiking. These allow you to keep a record of your speed during an excursion. Some functions, which top accelerometers can perform, include:

  • Distinguishing between running and walking
  • Calculating the number of steps taken
  • Calculating average speed
  • Determining total distance, caloric expenditure, and total exercise time.

Solar equipment can be used when backpacking or camping in the wilderness. When you find yourself camping far from the conveniences of modern life, such as electricity, you may need to rely on solar equipment. Solar equipment uses the sun’s energy to charge batteries and even your iPod. We sell solar equipment from the leading manufactures including Bruton and Silva.
