Got a Garmin Emap recently. Like it so far but have only used it for 3 caches. I used one with Tres Okies and it worked very nicely.

Basic eTrex, which I bought last week on a visit to SF. It helped me find my first two caches, though I know that if I get serious about this, I'll want something better one day...

I use a garmin GPS III+, but I'm almost sure I'm going to get the GPS V when it comes out. I love my III and but the primary reason I'm gonna get the V is WAAS. (see http://www.garmin.com/aboutGPS/waas.html )

e-trex vista - its accurate down to 3 meters and you cant beat all the extra features. if youre looking to buy a new unit, buy the legend or vista, they are the best on the market right now as far as personal devices go.the legend is the same except it doesnt have a digital compass or altimeter.

We use the Magellan 330. Simply put.

I picked up a Magellan 310 a couple of days ago BUT found that it wasn't quite accurate enough, so I returned it and picked up the eTrex Basic unit. Much better.

Basic yellow Garmin Etrex. So far, it has led me to 25 caches, so I'd say it ain't bad. I truly love it.

Garmin eMap with 8 Mb data card and MapSource and a Garmin StreetPilot III in the pickup.

 

The StreetPilot is great for getting to the general area because it does street-level routing. It's too big to use for geocaching and it only lasts 2 hours on 6(!) AA batteries. It has a power adapter and isn't intended to be removed from the vehicle, but I have used it for a few caches when my wife had the eMap.

I use a Magellan Map330 with Australian mapping standard. This unit works fine but doesn't seem to behave itself and hold the signals as well as my old Magellan 300 when under tree cover. The accuracy is the same for both units.

I have a Garmin Etrex Legend. (Maybe when people register, they could be prompted for the type of GPS they use. The results could be posted on a special page.)

Purchased my Mag 315 yesterday, took it out this morning, and pretty much have it down. I was surprised at how simple it was to use. Hope to take the family out this afternoon to find our first cache.

etrex vista--a great unit with lots of features. It sometimes blanks out under heavy cover but is very accurate.

Nothing like us hard core, old school, eTrex Summit users. You have to love the magnetic compass, but I Hate the "HOLD LEVEL" message.

Since it's misspelled in the first message, I thought I'd tell everyone I'm still using my 2-3 year old LOWRANCE GlobalNav12.

 

It acquires quite well, has a PC interface and was an easy step up from an old Eagle Explorer I had used.

It just lacks street mapping but who really needs that for Geocaching?

BTW, I have already been counted in thread 2 (I think).
