I just got my Garmin Fenix 7x Solar Sapphire yesterday and I was excited to test out the multi-band accuracy, so I went for a quick hike at the local slot canyon. In this video I’ll show you how the Fenix 7x multi-band positioning stacks up against the Fenix 6x Pro Solar, the GPSMAP 66i, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max.

I’m currently testing the Fenix 7x Solar Sapphire and the Epic (Gen 2). Stay tuned for an in depth (real-world) review and how-to guide.

Hi, I’m Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn’t so you don’t waste money. I don’t do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn’t do it without folks like you!).
