Are there any handheld GPS units that record mileage to 1/100 of a mile? I have looked through the specs on many models and nothing is stated regarding this. My GPSmap 62stc is great in all aspects except that it records to 1/10 of a mile. If the GPS only records to 1/10 of a mile it can be significantly off. When the unit shows 5.3 miles for a track, it could have just turned over from .2 or is about to turn to .4. A quarter of a mile is .25 not .2 or .3.

After this morning's short walk, the Trip Odometer on my old Oregon 450 shows 10.62 miles.
I would suppose that the Oregon 600 would do the same, as the functionality seems the same apart from a couple of tweaks and a better screen.

If your unit shows 5.3 miles, that would normally mean between 5.25 and 5.35 miles. It cannot stretch from 5.2 and a bit to almost 5.4, as the roundings have to be to a tenth of a mile, consistently for each decimal.
