+Macro Posted March 8, 2002 Share Posted March 8, 2002 I use a Garmin Etrex. Originally I purchased it for hiking and camping...basically as a safety measure when on remote outings so we never got lost. Then I discovered geocaching. For the most part I never considered the equipment a limitation thinking that if I was within 20 or 30 feet of an ammo can I could probably figure out where it was. Lately though I have started working on a few microcaches. Now 20 to 30 feet off mean not finding a cache...and it is starting to get really frustrating. So, my question is...Is buying a better (more expensive) GPSR going to make any difference? What makes one better than another? Better reciever? Better metrics for calculation? If someone out there upgraded from an Etrex to a better unit and can endorse one for me, I would really appreciate it. (So will my girlfriend since she gets my Etrex if I upgrade!) Thanks, Macro Quote Link to comment
