  • I travel quite a bit and would love to know the name of the lake, river or mountain I'm passing (instead of just a blue or green blob) Or even the name of mountain range in the distance. Is there a GPS that does this? Thanks.

I have a Garmin GPSMap 60CSX that allows you to upload whatever maps you'd like, and I know it can do what you're looking for. But it sounds like you are looking for one that will predominantly be used in a car. If my Garmin is any indication of what you can do I imagine you can install expanded maps (that you'd most likely have to buy) that would allow you to achieve this functionality.

With that being said, I'm pretty sure a model designed for hiking/boating would probably be your best bet.

If you have an Android device, Google Earth has enough layers available to display any features nearby, including geological ones like lakes and mountains, along with their labels.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
