A friend has gotten me interested into geocaching. I'm considering two units: The Magellan Sportrak Map, and the Magellan Meridian Gold. While I'm not looking to spend more than I have to, the price difference is not really an issue. (I'm aware that I have to add the price of memory to the Meridian if I want to download anything.)


I've read all about the specific differences; I'd be very grateful for some opinions as which unit I should go for, perhaps some feedback on aspects that don't come through simply reading the specs.


I would use it for hiking, geocaching, and some general use.


Thanks very much,

Thanks to all for the responses. Forgive one more question, this regarding the size of memory to purchase:


I vaguely recall reading somewhere that there is no point in getting more than a 32 MB memory, because that was the most that could be loaded at one time (I may really be mis-stating that.) In any case, does this ring a bell at all?


Thanks again,
