Garmin GPS V. I swear by it.


The auto-routing is about 90-95% accurate (every now and again I get betrayed by maps vs. actual, but not often), and saves me TONS of time finding the right road when I don't know the area. And in the field, when placing a cache, the "Average Location" function gives me spot on results for other finders...I usually let it take 100-200 automatic readings (more if heavy tree canopy) to derive a good set of coords.


I also have a Garmin eTrex Vista as my "backup" unit, and for any newbie caching companions I might bring with me.

I use a Magellan Sportrak pro for geocaching.

For the car I have a Dell Axim using the Pharos gps card.


Both work great, can't compare to any others b/c I never used any others.


What I am looking for now is what mapping software to purchase for the Dell axim. Looks like Mapopolis is the best bet... still not ready to shell out a hundred bucks just yet.
