+topmonkey Posted May 22, 2011 Share Posted May 22, 2011 I've been looking at dedicated GPS devices to buy over the last few months. There doesn't seem to be a 'classic' unit that most cachers use. I've read review after review after review. I've looked at follow the arrow, reviews on GC.com, watched video reviews on you tube and been into stores and held some of the machines in my hand. I still haven't a clue what to do. My list of 'must have' features... 1. Great battery life 2. Good quality gps signal - even under trees etc. 3. Paperless caching (need to see logs, cache descriptions, hints etc) 4. Ability to easily add maps (like talky toaster's for example) 5. Extra storage options via SD card etc 6. Good screen that is viewable in sunlight. 7. Robust unit that could stand a few drops if I got clumsy 8. No more than £300 9. erm... have I forgotten anything? I know there are units out there that do all this stuff, but it seems there's no 'must have' unit that everyone agrees on. Satmap10, Garmin Oregon, Dakota or GPSMap62, Magellan Explorist GC are near the top of my list. Will I be happy with any or all of them?? It's SO hard to know which one to plump for. I don't want to spend £300 on the unit that's not quite right! Any advice warmly appreciated... Quote Link to comment
