I know this has been raised a few times over the years, so apologies for that, 
but the technology and brands keep changing and it is difficult to keep up.
I need a Handheld GPS to support my vocalisation recordings.  The main 
requirements other than the obligatory battery life, ruggedness, light, 
international maps, deep forest satilite acquistion, etc, is the ability to 
input multiple way points and link them to a specific recording. 
Most of the units I see on line seem to have a detailed  drill down menu but 
what I am looking for is a compact unit whereby I can quickly enter a location, 
note the 'location reference' in my recording and then weeks later when I am 
back home, download that way point into my computer when I am doing my Meta 
Up until now I have been doing it after the fact off Google Earth and this is 
getting very old.
Also, the ability to pre-load waypoints is probably standard, but also 
required.  I am a hand held GPS novice, if that is not already evident by the 
questions, so any and all help is appreciated.
