+toil&trouble Posted September 2, 2011 Share Posted September 2, 2011 Quick question, we have an Oregon 300, really happy with it, we have city navigator, and we do a mix of urban and hiking caches. Would it be worth it to upgrade to topo maps? We were caching today, in an area that looked like a short trail in a park. We started out .2 miles from the cache, found one cache, found another sort of back toward to car, then ended up walking about two miles in circles trying to find the car. It was one of those areas where everything looked the same, and a couple kinds of trees, trails all the same, etc. Would topo maps have shown the trail? I know the Oregon makes a "track" but neither of us can seem to figure out how to follow that little purple line, no way to tell which way you've already gone, once you've back-tracked even a little.
