I have a Garmin GPS 60 and I find it easy to use. In conjunction with
a digital camera its track information can geocode images (using,
e.g., myTracks2 or similar software) based only on the shared
timestamps of the images and the GPS data. It is of course yet another
device that needs batteries, but it could also be considered a
necessity for remote location and off-road travel.
