sanramonhunter Posted August 4, 2007 Share Posted August 4, 2007 New to geocaching. I've done 4 so far using a combination of my friends nuvi and Google earth. After reading, and reading, and calling and waiting I have a few ideas on what I want, but wanted some experienced opinions. I've decided on going with a Garmin, I want to get one of the devices with the High Sensitivity antennae. That's about as far as I can get without any experience. So my questions are as follows: 1.) Is the electronic compass useful? I know it's not imperative, but if it is helpful I might as well get it. 2.) When Garmin states a device is Geochache ready, what exactly does that mean, and again if it's helpful/easier I will get one that has it. 3.)How much better is the quad-helix antennae on the 60 series? 4.) is the 76 series color screen different from the etrex and 60 series? I'm leaning twords the 60csx, figuring it has everything so how could I go wrong, plus i could get the maps and use in my car. But if I could just go with the etrex H or gps 60 I could just go buy a unit for the car with the price difference. I don't mind spending the extra bucks, but if it won't make geocaching ANY easier I'd just as soon get the cheaper model. Thanks in advance. Thanks for your help. Quote Link to comment
