New to Geocaching

Recommended Posts

I am new to Geocaching, have been looking around in the shadows before now. Would a Magellan Sportrak Map GPS be a good unit to begin with? Does it have issues? Thanks . . .

That unit is perfectly fine to cache with. I used one my first couple of years in the game. However, newer devices are more accurate, have more bells and whistles, and have paperless capabilities. Also, that device does not support USB connectivity to a PC. You either need a serial port or a Serial-to-USB converter. I had one of those that worked perfectly fine, but many have reported issues with attempting conversions over the years.

 

Good luck and welcome to the game!
