******* ADVICE NEEDED ********

Recommended Posts

I am in the market for a automotive GPS. Looking for something that I can enter cords for geocaching and it give verbal directions. I have a Magellan Meridian Pro and will continue to use it for geocaching as I havent found a gps that is both good in the car and good in the woods all in one. If anyone has some thoughts or suggestions on what kind of unit to buy I would appreciate the advice. Furthermore if you have a decent automotive gps for sale then I would be interested to see what you have. Thank in advance for your time in replying !!!!

First, let me apologize, as I'm not a Magellan follower, but if you can get a GPS to PDA cable that fits a pocket PC and your Magellan, then just add software, and you've got what you need...but with Christmas sales on, you'll probably be able to find an automotive unit that would double as a geocaching unit.

 

If geocaching accuracy is more important than bells and whistles (or you really like your GPS and just want to add on to what you already have) go with a PDA. GPS, and cable combo. I use mt Garmin 60C hooked to a Dell Axim, and it works great, we (the routing software & I) only argue in regards to shortcuts that work due to local traffic, otherwise, its been dead on.

 

If You want a one-unit-fits-all-needs and geocaching accuracy isn't THAT important, go with an automotive GPS, you can get a pretty decent unit for under $200 right now...

 

Hope that helps...
