Inventory Time> What GPS Units Do You Own ?


Recommended Posts

Our Very First GPS is the the DeLorme Earthmate PN-40. :ph34r:


I love it, was swayed by a friend who uses it for search and rescues all the time, love the unit, my only Gripe is battery life, but hey i can live with it............... My kids love going out and so do I. :anicute:


I also own 3 Garmin StreePilot C330's and now upgrading them to Nuvi 500's for the wife and I.

I am A truck Driver and she drives a School Bus, and we swear by them ....................... :)

What, no Rino owners?


Rino 110

(Just died yesterday after 5 years hard use (and putting in Lion batteries which I didn't know till yesterday would kill the unit. Doh! :()


Rino 530HCx:

I picked up for $280 and I haven't seen one unit I like better yet. It's the perfect Hunting/Camping/Hiking/Biking/Fishing/Geocaching/Weather/Communication/Driving GPS on the planet.


Yes they do have paperless geocaching contrary to popular misconceptions. I love the fact you can get 3D accuracy in buildings, caves, canyons and heavy tree canopies.


"You can't stop the signal Mal. The signal goes everywhere..." (movie quote from Serenity)


My only gripe is not being able to use map overlays (custom maps) on BaseCamp/MapSource to transfer to the device as it doesn't support that feature like the new Garmins. Would come in handy for the Mpls/St Paul skyway system overlays I have in MS/BC and various biking trails I haven't been to or logged yet.


Oh I could probably figure out how to hack it, but I just don't have the time as a single dad with two teenagers. :D

Still own:


Garmin GPS 12 (first gps, don't know what it is good for, hardly used)


Just purchased:


Garmin Nuvi 1300 (for my wife's car)

Delorme Earthmate PN-60 (for hunting, geocaching, and my truck)


Don't know why I keep buying technology, the learning curve is driving me crazy. Guess I can't help myself.

Love to see i'm not the only one out there with a surplus of GPS's!


Moto Droid using C:Geo

Garmin Nuvi 765T

2- Garmin Rino 530 HCx

Garmin GPSMAP 76S


Primarily use my phone when out seeking caches due to convenience and the ability to log catches, bugs, and find the closes ones instantly anywhere.


Although the Rino 530 makes it fun with the kiddos.

Just Bought - Garmin Oregon 450T

Been loading this up with 1:24k topos, custom maps and pocket queries. Can't wait to break it in!


Backup - T-Mobile Vibrant running c:geo

Does okay around town when the GPS decides to lock. Out in the woods with no cell reception and flaky GPS reception makes for a crummy day of caching :unsure:


Retired - Garmin eTrex Legend

Never had any luck with this unit. Bought back in 2005 and always had a heck of a time getting it to lock on to satellites


Permanent Mount - Lawrence Baja 480c

In the Jeep Rubicon for offroad adventures


Permanent Mount - Garmin nuvi 750

In the Xterra Offroad for family adventures

Garmin gpsmap60cs


will probably spring for one of the x units aftre they have matured a bit and I get some more use out of my 60cs - I figure I'll keep it another year and then see what's out there.


Uh, dude... The 60CSx is as mature as any other legacy Garmin out there.


As for my inventory:


Lowrance Global Map 100

Magellan SporTrak Pro

I started out Geocaching with a TOM TOM 130 car gps and eventually got a couple of etrex legends off from ebay. I still have them both, but I luckily won a Garmin Colorado 400t on an Overstock.com Auction for $120. Last Christmas my perfect wife got me a new Garmin 550. I still have all of those GPS an am now salivating over the new Garmin Montana, apparently I collect them now. :anitongue:

I think mine counts more as a obsession, than an inventory... let's see.. Including working dead, or gone....


Garmin eTrex Classic (Yellow, Non-H)

Delorme Earthmate LT-20 (1st one. Came with Street Atlas 2006)

Garmin eTrex Legend (Clear blue)

Garmin eTrex Venture HC

Magellan Map 410

Garmin GPS-72

Garmin NuVi 205 (1st, RIP.. killed by a upgrade.)

Delorme Earthmate LT-20 (2nd one. Came with Street Atlas 2008 I found at a tag sale)

Magellan Explorist 500LE (R.I.P. Killed by wrong recharger)

Garmin NuVi 205 (2nd, replaced the 1st, but Was stolen from my car last year)

Garmin eTrex Legend HCx (YAY! A hand-held I can put BIG maps on!)

Magellan Explorist 400

Lowrance iFinder PhD

Garmin Quest (original version, not the 2)

Garmin eTrex Summit HC

Lowrance iFinder Hunt

Garmin Nuvi 1300/1300T

Magellan eXplorist GC


Most of my geocaching is via the Legend HCx, the Summit HC, and the Explorist GC now. By now, I think I should have controlling stock in both Energizer & Duracell on AA Batteries. (I think I finally cooked my last set of Eneloops in the charger last week.. they wouldn't charge anymore.)

I still have my first GPSr, a Garmin GPS-III which we purchased in 1998. Next came the Garmin GPSMAP 60CS which has been a great workhorse for the last 6 years. Two days ago, we took advantage of the sale at REI and got the Garmin GPSMAP 62s. The big internal memory and micro SD card support are nice. I'm really going to like the "paperless" geocaching! I'm also using a Motorola Droid 2 with Groundspeak Android app on Verizon Wireless for those times when we are out and about without a GPSr.
