WTB: new to geocaching

Recommended Posts

Looking to buy a basic gps. I'm new to geocaching and don't need anything to fancy or expensive just an accurate GPS that will help me find the geocaches in my area. Live in Ontario price range around 100

Thanks

There are a bunch of real cheap GPS on ebay, try the following:

 

Garmin Etrex 10 $100 or less

 

Magellan Explorist GC $75 or less

 

Apishere Geomate Jr $50 or less

 

they are a good start, but if you have a smart phone, the official Geospeak app is only $10 and its excellent, plus most smartphone gps built in are very accurate, the only disadvantage is the reception, a real dedicated GPS will alway get a signal, but a phone is only as good as your carrier. Hope you have fun!!

I would caution you to NOT buy a Geomate Jr. I did own one. I would only recommend it to my worst enemy.

I even tried to talk the person I traded it to, out of it. But they already owned one, and understood it's limitations. Hopefully you will never find out.

I will be selling my Magellan Explorist GC as soon as we get our new one in a couple weeks. We are waiting on our tax refund that seems like it is never coming. PM me if you are interested!
