Switching back to my old handheld in General geocaching topics Posted April 27, 2017 I don't have a smart phone so I still use my Garmin 60Cx. My geobuddy usually uses a smart phone now and there is no doubt in my mind that my Garmin is much more accurate on the coordinates. He has the advantage of being able to read cache pages and logs out in the field while I have to print out anything like that if I want it, but to me that's part of the fun of geocaching - the advance planning. I've used the dichotomy of geocaching by phone vs. handheld in two of my Cliff Knowles Mysteries: Cached Out and Behead Me. Unlike me, Cliff has finally (in A Will to Die) joined the modern world and now caches with his phone.
