Which Garmin Should I Get? I Live In Canada, Are There Any Maps For Canada? Also, I Plan To Go GeoCaching AND Use It On The Road, So I Need A Map For Canada.

 

Also, Is It Hard To Use Average The Waypoint?

I have a Garmin GPS 12. I love it. easy to use, and have been able to find caches easily. P.S. It has an averaging feature too.

I just got a GPSMAP 76 and love it. It has a WAAS capable GPS receiver and 8 MB of map memory.

 

Garmin sells a Metro/Road and Recreation for Canada check it out and see if it will cover what you want.

Since this is a Metro and Roads and Recreation CD I would suggest a unit compatable with metro:

 

GPSMAP 76

eTrex Vista

eTrex Legend

eMap

 

The Street pilot series is also good but I don't think these would be good for geocaching. I would down load the manual for the above units and give them a quick look through.

Try these sources for Cananda maps. I haven't used them, so I cannot comment on the service.

Dittos on Suntzu- I too have a Garmin 12, which I've come to trust far more than some of the new spiffy $99 models... spend a little more, get a little more!
