Riffing off the Juno thread-

Our organization has been looking for small light weight "emergency" or
stop gap instruments for archaeological survey-situations when we don't
want to, or can't use the Trimble. I was told by a dealer that Juno is
not as shock resistant etc. as the GEO XH. ie you need to treat it like
a cell phone. We don't go throwing our instruments around but odd things
occasionally happen, and for our purposes I wonder if a Garmin device at
less cost would fit the bill-obviously the precision isn't the same.
Does anyone out there use a Garmin professionally and are you able to
export point data, (or more than point data) in a from that can
eventually end up being a dbf4 or shape file. If so, can you specify
projection in the export?
