Magellan 310...Good or Bad ????

Recommended Posts

Guest hazmatnh

Any input on the 310 would be great, its only $99.00, would it be good to get started??

It's as good as most others however it only allows viewing and entering postion information in 2 decimals of minutes (most geocaching is in 3 decimals, and 4 is becoming more commonplace)

 

eg. 51°00.12' instead of 51°00.123'

 

So with rounding error you could be upto 0.005' away from where the GPS indicates (or possibly 0.01' away from the cache - which may not sound much but it might be an appreciable area to search depending on where on the planet you're located at the time).

Don't bother with the 310. Get the 315. The difference in price is definitely worth it.

Thanks for the input, I guess the 315 is for me, only $40 more!
