My kids and I began geocaching this summer with a $20.00 Magellan 315 GPS that I found at a garage sale. WHile it has been great as far as getting into the sport, I am windering if I might have better success (we usually have to visit a site twice befire we find the cache- could just be us though!)with a "fancier" unit. I'm thinking about asking my husband for one for Xmas. We don't need anything fancy. I'm wondering if a new unit under $100 would offer us more than what we've got now. I see a store on eBay sells Magellan Explorist 300 units for around $80.00. I'm not an outdoor geek- just enjoy geocaching.
I noticed this question in the question pool for geocaching. Unfortunately, I am not notified of questions posted to the pool and just stumbled across this by accident. If you still need any advice please submit a new question directly to me (instead of the pool) and I'll get back with you quickly!
