  1. Viajero, I have a Droid Maxx, which has probably the longest battery life of any phone on the market. But using GPS, even with having downloaded the coordinates offline is draining. I sometimes go out for a whole day of hiking and caching, so would rather conserve for an emergency. The second is I've been venturing into areas where there is limited or no cell service. Sometimes I can get a text message out, which is better than nothing. I always let my family know where I'm going, leave the coords I'm hunting and when to expect me back. I'm planning a weekend primitive camping/hunt in the mountains so a GPS, along with a Sat phone is necessary. There is zero service.

  2. I recently started Geocaching and love that I can combine it with my love for hiking. I always stay on the trails, but with GC I've now discovered great places off the trail both hiking and mtn biking that I can be comfortable exploring seeing as how people before me have blazed the way. Time to get a GPS! Its all about the kids this time of the year so my budget is $200 (Merry Christmas to me). I am comfortable with technology and would like something that won't be obsolete in a year or two. What I've found so far is: Garmin eTrex 20 and Magellan eXplorist 310. Which do you recommend and why? Is there another in this price range you would suggest?

    Thank you in advance for your advice!
