The critical feature in the best GPS for rural travel is the availability of a combination of detailed maps covering an extensive area around the regions you intend to traverse, inbuilt base maps and support for third party maps. Also handy is the capability of storing at least 1000 waypoints along with multiple via points, and route personalisation via web-based mapping software either directly or through a pc.

Another important feature to look for in the best GPS for rural areas an inbuilt or external antenna of atleast 27 dB gain for good reception and to avoid signal distortion in areas with dense tree coverage. Also helpful is good waterproofing (atleast an IPX7 rating), around 8 – 10 hours battery life and a transflective touch screen to benefit easy reading.
