GPS for Geocaching
« on: December 07, 2006, 08:11:03 PM »
I am thinking of getting my wife a GPS unit for geocaching.  Can anyone make any recommendations of features that are desirable?  Are there units that will work with road maps as well as for trail use?

I have little experience with them except with a really old unit I hardly use.  There are so many features on newer ones.  What does she need and what is overkill?

Thanks for any advice!

I use a Garmin GPS76 I forget which model..... It is overkill but I like having the downloadable maps.

The eTrek Legend seems to be a good solid unit, without a huge price tag. I am starting to look into a GPS to use with ARPS. At around $119 (Tigerdirect.com I think....) it is a solid choice for the budget minded, as are all of the eTrek series.
I am NOT crazy! I've just been in a bad mood for the last 30 years!

Cabela's has the Garmin GPSMAP60CSx on sale for $250.  I have been using this unit for geocaching for a couple of years now and it is rugged, reliable and easy to use.
