JamesStock Posted September 10, 2012 Share Posted September 10, 2012 So my daughter is turning 3 in 2 weeks and I am crash coursing this whole geocashing thing. Very confusing what GPS I should get. I am willing to spend $300 or more maybe. The Geocaching Jr. concept seemed interesting because it is only $70 and who knows how much time we will be doing this. But I read that the updates stopped Dec 31, 2011. Then I have read mixed things about updates coming back recently. Can anybody tell me if the GeoCaching Jr. has update capabilities now? Also if anybody has any advice about a good GPS in particular I am all ears. I realize this is perhaps the ultimate newbie question, but I have spent about 3 hours on this and don't have forever to buy as her bday is coming up soon. There amount of GPSs are overwhelming and I read so many different things it is hard to get a proper mental consensus on what is good to get. I don't really feel like spending $600 on something and then only use a few times. The $70 investment seemed like a good deal and if kid/wife like the concept I can upgrade for Xmas and keep one in the car or whatever. Anyway, any advice on the geocaching Jr. would be helpful. I also note that the geo Jr. does not have maps and my daughter like maps because of Dora the Explorer so that is something to consider as well. There are just so many GPSs out there it is very confusing. Quote Link to comment
