geocrasher Posted March 22, 2021 Share Posted March 22, 2021 (edited) Hello everyone, Years ago I used to cache a lot. I had a 60 series Garmin with a color screen. I lent it to a friend and got destroyed! Oops. Oh well. Reparations were made in the form of concert tickets at the time lol. My typical adventure would mean finding an interesting spot on Google Maps/Earth, mark the coordinates, upload them to the GPS along with any caches, and go exploring. I use GSAK at the time, and I remember doing something with KML files but don't recall what now lol. It's been a decade and I'd like to get back into caching/hiking/exploring. I live in the PNW near Olympic National Forest, and will be spending time in among the forests of trees, and the old 2003 Garmin Etrex just doesn't cut it! Assuming I want to spend $200-300, what's a good GPS these days? I see the Garmin GPSMAP 64x on Amazon for just over $200, and the Garmin GPSMAP 64 for $280. There's also the etrex series, but I rather liked having real buttons to push. So, I'm at a loss. There's so many options out there, and I don't know how to interpret all the new options. I'll appreciate any recommendations. Thanks, and as we say in the ham radio community, 73 Edited March 22, 2021 by geocrasher Quote Link to comment
