  1. If he sold his, and you are still looking, try Tigerdirect, as they usually have the cheapest price around for New Units: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/se...9&sku=G145-0026
  2. For using a PDA for Geocaching and doing paperless Caching I suggest reading an article writen by Clan_Barron called Paperless Caching located here: His article is very helpfull on using Geocaching Swiss Army Knife (GSAK) and CacheMate with your GPS and PDA's.

  4. For using a PDA for Geocaching and doing paperless Caching I suggest reading an article writen by Clan_Barron called Paperless Caching located here: As for Units for the amount of money you would like to spend, I suggest the Garmin legend CX $240 or the Garmin Venture Cx for $209, plus geting Mapsource City Navigator or City Select which also will give you Auto-route which is extremly helpfull for Driving. Try checking Prices on EBay and/or some of these stores: Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/ProductSort/Category.asp?Category=277 Tigerdirect: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Se...x=10&image1.y=7 waterandwoods (EBay Seller): http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQfgtpZ1QQfrppZ2...Q3aMEFSQ3aMESOI TigerGPS: http://www.tigergps.com/ You might also want to maybe look at the eariler Discussion: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...opic=132252&hl= Hope this helps, Good Luck, and Happy Cache Huntingand most of all Practice Cache and Release
  5. I hope he means that he will try it with the basic eTrex Legend (black & White) and the Legend CX and not the Vista Cx as he mentioned as we were not inquiring about the Vista Cx. I have a brother that does own the Vista Cx along with a Legend Cx and he said they both are off when comparing to the Legend (black & White) so maybe this won't really matter, the results should be about the same. Tammer&jammer, Thanks for the effort, hopefully something will come of this.
  6. I too find that my Legend CX is not as accurate as my old legend Black and white. I usually am out caching with family members or Friends, that are using the Black and white Legend, and almost 90% of time, their cordinance to the cache are more accurate than the Legend CX. I hope this isn't a problem with the new CX's, as if it is, I hope Garmin comes up with a fix or a solution. I am now starting to wonder if I should of waited and bought the new Venture CX instead, as I was thinking of doing originaly.
  7. WELCOME to the Sport/Hobby of Geocaching, I am sure you will enjoy it. Once you learn how, try talking the wife in going and I am sure she will like it also. FYI, if you are from Wisconsin, we have our own Geocaching web site, make sure and visit it at: http://www.wi-geocaching.com/
  8. Yea, hear you both there, I sold my Basic Legend to a Friend and invested in a Legend CX also, just a few weeks ago too. I really love the color maps, they just make geocaching so much more fun. I also went and bought Garmin's Mapsource City Navigator v7 and Autorouting is so cool. I really like being able to enter in address and having an autoroute figured right to the door steps. One thing I have noticed though, sometimes when Caching with my Team mates, the Basic Legend is closer to the posted Cord's than my Legend CX, anyone else notice that also????
  9. Once you get a cheap Palm Pilot, check out this web page by Clan_Barron, for and easy explaination on paperless Caching:
  10. Here is a very easy to follow tuturial eplaining on to use GSAK and Cachemate:
  11. I tried using Spinner and Plucker, but found that there was a simplier and faster way of doing Paperless, called GSAK and Cachemeate, have you ever looked at those 2? I found a very complete and easy to follow tuturial here:
  12. You know, that sounds like what happens to me lots of times also, I feel for you for sure. Welcome to Hobby/Sport of GeoCaching, The Legend is really easy to use, just takes a little reading and patients. Good Luck and most of all, HAVE FUN! For starters I suggest reading the Beginners guide to Geocaching located here: http://www.factsfacts.com/geocacher.htm
  13. If 64 megs are enough for you, go for it. Otherwise: Venture Cx at Amazon $210 with super saver shipping + Crucial card reader from newegg for $8 + $5 shipping (comes with USB cable) + Sandisk 512 MB microSD card 19.99 shipped, after rebate from buy.com (see previous posting) Total: $243 Which is 3 bucks more than the vista, but you get a 512 MB card, a microSD->SD adapter and a card reader. I wouldn't hesitate to call this a no brainer. Cool, thanks for the info, my wife wants a new GPS now, and I will look into tha
  14. PLEASE TELL ME Where can you get the Venture Cx , USB Cable and 64 Micro SD Cards for cheaper price than buying a Legend CX $234.99 from New Egg (List Price $249.99 - $15 instant savings = $234.99 plus 3 day shipping $4.99 Total = $239.98) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?...N82E16858108029 It also seems that all the latest Legend Cx's are coming with 64mb cards instead of 32mb cards
  15. I started out using a Garmin e Trex Legend and it works great for finding Geocaches. You can get a new one for $119.00 from Tigerdirect. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/se...9&sku=G145-0026 I also just purchased a Garmin e Trex Legend CX because I wanted the auto-routing feature, figured it would help me find out of town job sites. I really enjoy the colorize maps better than the what the basic Legend has to offer.

  16. My Brother had the same problem and he could not use the computer with the Legend CX either. It happened to him with 2 Garmin Legend CX's, not sure if it is related to him also using a Vista C on the same computer to transfer Waypoints and map info. He did send them both back to garmin, I haven't talked to him since he sent the 2nd unit back. I hope this is not happening a lot, as I just recieved my Legend CX about a week ago.

  24. I just purchased a Garmin Legend CX and noticed lots of people talking about Garmin's Mapsource City Select North America. I checked the compatible chart for City Select and it lists that it will work with the older Legend C model, but does not list anything newer. Does anyone know if City Select North America will work with the newer Legend CX as I want to use auto-routing?
  25. Hey Dchengmd, do you by any chance know if City Select will also work with the new Garmin Legend CX?
