GPS Device Purchasing

A former member
Post #: 7
I want to purchase a GPS device to explore this exciting hobby of geocaching. I am also a Mt. Biker, Rock Climber, Hiker, and Off Road Enthusiast. On top of everything im broke LOL.

I want to make a one time purchase of a device with the ability to maybe update it throughout the years.

Looking for opinions, ideas, feedback.

Hey Travis,
My experence has been with Garmin. It has been said that the 60CSx is the workhorse of the GPS's. I have found this to be true. It is sturdy, well made, and up-gradeable. It doesn't have the sunlight readability problems that the newer touchscreen models have. Check e-bay, you can get new for about $300. Bottom line, I am more than happy with mine and would buy another if needed.

Hey there,
After much research of personal GPS's I came to purchase the Delorme PN40, its about $230 on Amazon (normally $400) and it comes with 100K Topo and has the ability to display color aerial imagery and much more with a subscription price of $30 which is a steal compared to others. I used it geocaching today and everything went smoothly!
