I did a little geocaching with some friends this summer, and really want to do some more. To that end, I just got my first GPS, a Garmin GPSMAP 60C.
So far I’m totally digging it. It gets great reception, even in
the car, and the color screen is super easy to read. It’s even
got some nice built-in geocaching features, like the ability to mark a
cache as found, and recording when you found it.
The USB interface is super easy, and I was able to upload/download
waypoints in no time. I have yet to try downloading a route, but
that will be next. I haven’t shelled out for the mapping software
yet, so I have to content myself with the basemap, which isn’t much to
go on, but should be enough for highways at least.
I’m hoping to get in some ‘caching this weekend, so we’ll see how well it works in the field.
