A basic GPS receiver that has a photovoltaic charger and a "clockwork" generator built in. Needs no external power. Crank the handle for five minutes and it tells you where you are. Or just leave it in the sun (if any)*.
* Not suitable for Scotland.

||So, a GPS receiver, but just add solar power? Quiet, in

||Yes, but they're not integrated. Extra kit to lug around and get damaged or lost, fiddly cables, the works.
||I like this - the solar panel will encourage you to move out from under foliage, where the GPS doesn't work very well.
||Yes, you should never propose a concept if you can foresee that the detail design might not be done properly.
