  1. Debbzilla I have a PN-20 and I love it. For as low as $132.00 wallmart you can't beat this unit. I love the paperless caching ability and Delormes after purchase support is the best of any co. I purchased this and a Garmin Venture HC when my old legend started acting up and kept the PN-20 for myself and gave the Garmin to my wife aslo I just upgraded to the new topo 8 release for just the cost of shipping (9.95) they also have a 30 day return policy so if you're on the fence it's risk free. Cladius. NOTE I also purchased the travel kit that eliminates the need of batteries (it does eat them up) and am getting 8 hours or so on a charge of constant use.
  2. I have two legends - old blue and new HC and a PN-20. The 20 is with me constantly and FYI with the new Topo 8 canada&mexico will be covered with a free upgrade. I love the paperless feature and would note the only negative I have found is short battery life compared to my garmins but I went with the travel pack (still put whole package under $200) and is now a non issue. I found the PN-20 way easier to use than my garmins. I bought the 20 to see if I would like it enough to send back and get a PN-40 but found no need to upgrade as my 20 is evrything I wanted and much more.
  3. Yup just loaded 100 caches in my 20 to find. waiting on topo 8 & cache register.
  4. I can be pretty inpartial as I currently owm five different brands of GPS's 1 furuno,1 TomTom , two magellons, 4 garmins and 1 DeLorme. and I have to say the Delorme PN-20 is the best value for the money of all of them! And I spent 6 times as much for some of the others (with less options and needing two antenas) as the DeLorme. I bought it as a backup unit and it has become my every day for every thing choice. I've seen them for $132.00 at Wallmart. You can't touch this for that price. Oh yeah paperless caching too! It's a no brainer. Scotty.
  5. I did five one day blind folded with one arm tied behind my back and week batts in my GPS. ( driving was the hard part!)
  6. Delorme PN-20 comes with maping and paperless caching for under $150.00 at several shops. Probly your cheapest full function option. Sorry about your loss glad you're OK and good luck.
  7. In the down time I picked up a Delorme PN20 and old blue has been on the reserve squad. With the 1.6 firmwear I'm paperless and loving it. Scotty.
  8. Your dogs get all excited when they see you pick up your hand held.
  9. Your more excited about the send to GPS function then the ability to down load NOAA maps for fishing.
  10. I choose to be a PM even though I am casual cacher (80 finds) in several years, I don't have time to hide and service caches of my own to support this great sport so kicking in a couple af bucks is my way of showing my appreciation for those that do. I am fortunate that there are hundreds of caches in my area and very few are premium. Just the "send to GPS" feature makes it worth it to me. Enjoy yourself lifes too short to sweat the small stuff! Just saying. Cladius.
  11. Use your region with topo 7.0 hybred and you should be good to go.
  12. I have a brand new palm Z22 all I've done is activate it never been in the field. I will add two rubber covers and a set of 3 extra sticks (stylus), all cables, CD's etc. in original box. I bought to go paperless then got a Delorme that does so. No scratches like new. Only been charged twice! All was purchased new (not refurb for $120.00) $ 80.00 to your door.
  13. Delorme PN-20 download the 1.6 beta firmwear and click send to gps function. $132.00 on line if you shop around.
  14. I just did the 1.6 beta and loaded 50 caches in (only took 3 beers!) I wanted a backup unit for my boat and figured I would try out Delrome before I spent 300-400+$$$$ on one I didn't like. After just 3 days with the PN-20 I have to say I'm a believer. I still haven't used any of the $140.00 of free map down loads yet. If the PN-40 is better it must be awsome. Oh yeah I have had GPS's for over 10 years and just bought a Legend HC for the wife before this (for $50.00 more) sigh.
  15. I have a TomTom I use too. I bought because you can enter Lat Lon manually and use it to get to the parking near a cache I then swith to my hand held for the actual hunting.
  16. I hardly use my several units except for Hunting,fishing,metal detecting,travel,diving,speed checks on boat/cycle, oh yeah caching too! Like I said hardly use them at all.
  17. You should be able to get an adapter for your old serial port to usb.
  18. Just to follow up. I turned off the waas and the unit has been fine. I turned waas back on and it still seems to be working like it's old self. I will still do the update when I get a chance. Thanks for all your help.
  19. The recient issue with my old legend has me thinking of getting a new hand held. I cache,hunt,fish off shore,metal detect, etc. old blue has bailed me out many times when I needed her. There have been several times I've had to out run Tstorms 30 miles offshore where I turn off all electronics on the boat and come in using my hand held VHF&GPS. I bought my wife a Legend HS for christmas that seems pretty slick or would the vista 60 CS be a better choice for my multi use needs? Thanks. Cladius.
  20. Well the good news is I found the cable the bad news is my laptop doesn't have that old style serial port connection. I will take it to work tonight and see if IT hasn't filtered me from doing it there. So far dissabling waas seems to be working. To be cont..................
  21. Just got home from work and have dissabled waas and put in new batts. I'll try upgrade in the morning too. I'll let you guys know how it turns out. Thanks.
  22. Thanks I'll hunt up my cable tomorrow and try it.
  23. Turning off the waas is easy enough to try. What is envolved with an upgrade? How would I go about it? Thanks.
  24. Well turning off the waas is easy enough to try. What would an upgrading entail? thanks.
