auto gps and geocacheing

Is there an automotive gps navigator that accepts geocache co-ordinates and routes?
I use my Nuvi 1250 (those are $100) to navigate to a parking area for a cache. My handheld GPS can do street routing, but the auto version is of course much better suited. And it accepts a cache's GPX file.


The car GPS won't come pre-loaded with trails or even park roads. Once you leave the DOT mapped roads, navigation is hit-and-miss. But depending on where you intend to cache, that may not be a problem.

I'm gonna guess ........Nuvi 500.


We use a Nuvi to get near the cache (we can see the geocaches once the unit is zoomed in). My car came with a Nuvi 750.


We now use one of the higher end Garmins that have streets, and turn by turn directions. (Garmin 62S $500)


You need a unit that has the maps. I think you can buy maps for the Legend also. It will add all the tiny streets.
