WHETHER YOU'RE A GEEK or a technophobe, recent advances in technology make it amazingly easy to find your way on land or water.

Likewise, the latest phones and two-way radios are smaller and more powerful than ever. Best of all, GPS and communication technologies are converging in a new breed of multipurpose devices that will reduce your overall gadget load. Whatever the adventure—a backcountry climb, a remote paddling expedition, or just an afternoon trail run—the tools presented here are guaranteed to keep you tuned in.
