My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Already Obsolete
Squeeze only weighs 1 ounce more, so not really obsolete

Re: My GPS screen is cloudy
I talked to Garmin. They said for $110 I could exchange my 60CSx for a refurbished one with a new screen panel. Typical of Garmin, you have a problem and they want to charge a bunch to resolve it...
