  1. I think this is a great idea! I really liked the one that Ponyboy designed and would love to get one from every cache that I log. Cards of individual cachers would be less interesting to me, but still a neat idea. I would probably pitch in if it weren't too expensive.
  2. I have owned my Visor for about 3 weeks and I had no previous PDA experience. I have had my Magellan GPS Companion for five days and I have had no previous civilian GPS experience (Military is different). While the Magellan module comes with VERY few instructions, I was able to figure it out in short order and logged 2 caches the same day I loaded the software. You CAN get instructions from the Magellan site in .pdf format. While I have limited experience in such matters, the things I have seen in this and other threads lead me to believe that the PDA/GPS combo can be much more useful/powerful than a standalone GPS. The two major drawbacks I see to it though are the fact that it is not as rugged/shockproof as some of the standalones and the fact that it is not the tiniest bit water resistant, let alone waterproof.
  3. Hello all! I am new to the game/sport/whatever and I am wondering if there is a club or organization in the Dallas, Tx area.
  4. I have a Visor Prism and a Magellan GPS Companion. The GPS uses it's own set of 2 AAA batteries and they last about 8 hrs. I am definately going to get rechangeables because I don't want to replace the batteries after each weekend of caching.
  5. I just got into caching myself (logged first 2 caches last night!), although I have lurked around here for a couple of months. I have 2 co-workers that are thinking seriously of joining me and at least one or two more who think it sounds like fun, but probably won't get into it.
  6. Got the software installed and played with it a bit this morning, but I am still not sure how to go about using it to locate a cache. There seem to be a lot of features, but no instructions on how to use them.

    Help!

    Greetings all! I was wondering if anyone uses the Magellan GPS Companion for the Handspring Visor? I just got mine yesterday and it did not come with very good instructions (almost none actually). I am new to GPS in general and need some pointers. Thanks, Gavvin
