Used PN-20

Followers 1

Recommended Posts

Picked up a used PN-20 last night and trying to decide if it stays or goes. I have no cable, no software, no manual.

I have no problem with $20 for a cable and I can download a manual, but software looks like it's an issue. I see they sell a caching app for $10. Will that be enough for me to get out and hunt or am I looking at dropping money for X-Maps or some such?

I'm looking to use it as a backup unit so I'm not planning on making a major investment.

If you don't care about maps, all you need is a cable (12.95 from Delorme) and either Cache Register (9.95 download from Delorme) or GSAK (free to try but will get nag screens after 25 days unless you buy it for $25) Either of those programs will allow you to load pocket queries to the PN-20 as long as you update it with the latest firmware from Delorme. If you don't care about pocket queries, you can skip the software and just load caches one at a time using the "send to GPS" button on each cache page.
