+Paul & Ros Posted August 27, 2007 Share Posted August 27, 2007 (edited) For the last 3 years we have been happily caching using a Garmin Geko 201 plus an old Palm M515 with a GPS backpack fitted to it which I got cheap from that auction site. The Geko found the caches while the Palm ran Fugawi to help us navigate to the general area and Plucker to go paperless with the cache pages. We were very happy with this set up until this week when we had a double whammy of bad luck. The GPS add on for the Palm stopped working so fugawi is currently no more use to us than a paper OS map and today, whilst out caching, we managed to lose our Geko somewhere within just a few feet of here : http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...c2-5ff920ae3414. So - It looks like we are going to have to invest in some new equipment and rather than just replace what we had it seems like a good time to try and get something which will do everything we need in one unit. As we have never had a tom tom style sat nav for the car it also seemed like a good idea to try and get something which would do non cache related navigation as well. Any ideas then for a single piece of kit (and any additional software) which will : Work as an in car sat nav for getting from A to B. Run Fugawi UK v2 (I think this runs on PPC as well as Palm). Run plucker or something similar enabling us to read gpx based files on the move. Work as a "follow the arrow" GPS to allow us to find caches. Not take forever and a day when switching between applications. Not fussed about it being brand new if something older and second hand will do the job. Any advice gladly received to enable us to get back up and running. Paul Edited August 27, 2007 by Paul & Ros Quote Link to comment
