  1. I recently came across SCOTTeVEST (http://scottevest.com). I am really intrigued, and I would like to get one for geocaching. They are expensive, but I would be prepared to get it. So, I am asking those who have this vest, is it worth it? Is it good for geocaching? Which one of these would be the best for caching? I appreciate all replies, thanks
  2. A Garmin GPSMAP 64 is pretty good for geocaching from what I've heard, it is definitely one of the more accurate ones. You will never be able to get complete accuracy, 3m/10ft is pretty average accuracy.
  3. So, essentially, either or is good?
  4. I started geocaching a little while ago, and I have been using a Garmin eTrex 10. Although I love this device and think it is great, I plan on doing a lot more caching in the future, and I think that a device which has color and the ability to load maps such as topographic maps onto it would be good for me. I don't want a touchscreen device though. Within the next 6 months or so, I plan on upgrading, and I am stuck between two devices; the Garmin eTrex 30, and the Garmin GPSMAP 64st. They seem to share similar features, although the 64st probably has higher accuracy, and has an exterior antenna, and is slightly bigger in size. The eTrex 30, on the other hand, has superior battery life. Link to eTrex 30: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/into-sports/handheld/etrex-30x/prod518048.html Link to GPSMAP 64st: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/on-the-trail/handhelds/gpsmap-64st/prod140024.html I think I am leaning towards the 64st, it appears to have better specs and more memory. It is also $50-60 more. I would appreciate help from anyone who owns one of these devices, or has lots of experience with GPS devices. Thank you!
  5. I'm curious... - What is your cache finds to hides ratio? - What would you say is an ideal cache finds to hides ratio?
  6. I think that virtual caches should be brought back, but only to an extent. Perhaps, virtual caches could only be allowed in places where physical caches are not allowed, for an example, national/provincial parks. Otherwise, physical caches should be placed. Allowing the placement of virtual caches in areas that do not allow physical geocaches would really make a better geocaching experience.
