First GPS unit

Garmin EtrexI just bought our first hand held Garmin Etrex GPS unit for geocaching. I researched different brands and found Garmin’s to have the most good reviews. The other brands had too many bugs and fixes needed. You can see the specs of the Etrex here. I found this one used on Ebay for a really good price. Can’t wait to get it and learn how to use it to find caches.

  1. My first unit was a Garmin also. I wouldn’t use any other brand.

  2. Great unit. You’ll have fun with it!

  3. I just purchased my first GPS unit the Garmin 60CSx. I am trying to understand it. I would love to have an experienced user spend some time with me to help, (i am not a big manual reader kinda guy). I upload my hikes and walks into http://www.motionbased.com. That is cool…. I am trying to get ready for Mt. Whitney and want to know as much as possible. It was a God-sent on my last hike, I got dumped off on the wrong trail, and I used it to get back on course. If I was better at using it, I would have not got turned around. Live and learn…
