+BenHuge'N'Juggs Posted September 9, 2005 Share Posted September 9, 2005 Ok, so I'm somewhat new to geocaching, not a complete novice, but close. I was so excited when I first found out about geocaching that I ran out and bought the coolest sounding one I could find. I got a Cobra GPS 1000 on Ebay for a little over 200 bucks. It seemed really cool at first, but the more I have used it on hikes and while looking for caches, the more I think it sucks. Has anyone had any experience with these? It just seems inaccurate to me. I'll be standing at the beach and it'll say my elevation is 500ft. Is that normal? Does everyone but me have a really cool Garmin that gets them to within inches of the coordinates for the geocache they are looking for? It just seems like its always tracking around, even while I am standing still. Am I expecting too much from my $200 GPS? Quote Link to comment
