  1. This is probably the number one most frequently-asked question in this part of the forums. It appears you've overlooked the following sticky thread created specifically for answering your question:




    You can also click on GPS REVIEWS, located in the left-hand toolbar, from basically any page in Geocaching.com




    I just found this link, called "Guide to Buying a GPS Device"



  2. For $50, probably not. I took a moment to search Amazon, and the cheapest you'll find there (at this moment) is $140. I took a peek in the "Garage Sale" thread in these forums and there's an eXplorist 210 for $80 CDN. That's about the cheapest you'll ever see anything.


    Of course, if you already have a Treo (or similar device), then go for the GPS unit you already found on Amazon.

  3. This appears to be a GPS that you connect, via bluetooth, to another device (like a Treo). If you don't have that second device, this GPS won't do anyone any good.


    To find out if you can use a GPS for geocaching, just find out if you can enter coordinates into the GPS. If you can't, then you can't use it to geocache.

  4. Nowadays plenty of phones contain GPS technology. Considering the fact that GPS technology comes in many different flavors, different phones will be better GPS units than others.


    Post what you know about different phones' GPS technologies and capabilities. For example, does the iPhone contain a sirf chip? Does it have access to WAAS? How about different Blackberries?
