well last weekend on the 24th me and GRTSCT got together and went caching. my gpsr (magellan sportrak map) is the only one i have ever used so we swapped for a little while his is a garmin etrex legend so both were in the same price range.
it was a really bad day for sat. signals 3 to 4 sats max we walked a trail that was fairly high tree cover the garmin did not lock on not one time my sportrak stay locked 95% of the time.The 25th we had great signals(i had 11 at one time) my sportrak did not lose a signal even in the glovebox of my car.On one trail were the garmin stayed locked most of the time it seemed to process the info a little quicker. For example while we were walking the garmin stayed about 0.01 miles ahead of the magellan then when we stoped the magellan would catch up in a few seconds but what good is that if it won't stay locked on the sats?
