riverboat2001 Posted July 8, 2008 Share Posted July 8, 2008 Hi All, first time posting on this forum, so please be gentle with me ! We had a go at Geocaching for the first time this evening, and found two out of four we looked for. We were using Tomtom One to get in the general area and then my trusty Nokia N95 and the geocache navigator software. The problem was that the indicator kept jumping from 16ft away to 32ft away, and also from left to right (on the radar type screen) we must have looked a sight wandering back and forth. LOL My nokia is running the latest firmware and gets a fix in a few seconds when using Nokia maps, I feel confident that we were in the right area of the two caches we didn't find, but i'm wondering wether getting a dedicated unit would provide a definate locked on signal. We are going on a family holiday in the UK soon and this would be a fantastic bonus to get us moving after dinner ! I'm happy to spend about £100 on a unit, new or via ebay. I quite fancy the idea of a radar type screen to follow. Also do any of them have the ability to download road/google maps on a nice coloured screen like my N95 ? I know to purist's this may seem like a dumbing down question, but like i said, i'm a complete noob at this! Quote Link to comment
