Hand help GPS

Recommended Posts

I guess I am looking for a hybrid standalone GPS that can (on demand) connect wirelessly to my Android smartphone.

 

Here is my thinking. I am happy to load up the geocaches I plan to find ahead of my day, but occasionally I might stray from my days plan and go elsewhere. When you are on the road you can't easily update the GPS with new geocaches.

 

I was wondering if there is a GPS on the market that can connect (via bluetooth would be great, or even a cable) so you can use your smartphone to download geocaches on the fly.

 

I don't want to jeopardise the battery usage of the standalone GPS for this feature, but if it could be turned on and turned off on a needs basis then I imagine the extra battery usage would minimal, and the flexibility of being to add caches on the run would be awesome.

 

Any ideas out there?
