Good  Morning  Everyone -
Yes, I am still plugging the forum for information even though I have
moved.  Still the best source for information and opinions.

We are going to be completing some field work in the near future and are
looking into renting a GPS Unit (trying it out before we buy).  For
sub-meter accuracy, the following two units were recommended time and
time again, the Trimble ProXRS VS Trimble GeoExplorer XT.  I am aware of
the basic differences between these two units, ProXRS has external
antennae and differential GPS and the GeoXT has internal antennae and
WAAS.  I know which way I am leaning but would like to hear what any of
you have to say before I commit.

Any personal opinions or criticisms about these units?  Which do you
suggest?  Any other GPS unit you prefer?
