    Bought this about 3 weeks ago for geocaching. Took a few outings to get used to. Wasn't sure I was going to keep I love it! Works great and I love going paperless now!! Could easily be used for hiking charts your path with a red line and would be easy to follow back if you were lost. You could set your waypoint and it would show you the way home! Came with lithium batteries and they lasted forever! Picture is very bright and love having the buttons all on the front. For the price, you can't beat what it does especially if you are a geocacher on a budget!

    This is a nice basic GPS geared to go geocaching with. The screen is a little hard to see in bright outdoor light. The auto zoom is nice the closer you get to the geocache. The only real down side is the sat. signal is not real strong if you are around trees, and I'm not talking very heavy cover.

    I just received it in the today, so far it is awesome, the only issue is that it doesn't keep the time very well. Lol. I have it set on the right time zone, but every time it refreshes (when I turn it on or off or unplug it from the computer) it changes by 4 or 5 hours. Anyways, it is easy to use and figure out I only had to read the directions once and I understood it perfectly. (Normally I have to read them like 4 or 5 times when it comes to electronics) It comes with batteries and a USB cable which surprised me to be honest. You also get a 30-day free trial of the Premium membership to And it comes with the top 1000 geocaches in your area. I deleted them because most of them were on the neighboring islands. I will post more about the functions when I actually get to use it tomorrow! :) But so far I am really excited about this GPS and it was definitely worth the money and it is so adorable! It fits perfectly in my hand and seems pretty durable. I hope it really is because I drop everything! LOL!!! Lucky for me it comes with a one year warranty I believe. :) It is a geocachers dream!!! lol. So far anyways hopefully I don't end up taking back everything I put on here!

    Just wondering if I have to go thru the work of preloading coordinates or can I find caches using this device wherever I am?

    • A. u have to preload them before you leave home. I've loaded all the ones in my area, and then when I am out, I can grab 'em.

    • A. That is the one thing that bugs me... loading them before hand. As far as I can tell that is how you have to do it. It would be GREAT if you could push a button and it give you all of them around you though.

    • A. You don't have to preload individual coordinates, but you do have to load this up with caches from your PC before you go out - no "live" data out in the field. How it works is kind of cool - you do queries on for up to 1000 caches per query (I currently have 5 different queries with about 5000 caches total loaded on this GPS right now), either as a radius around a specific area (address, ZIP code, city, etc), or even "along a route" on a map (such as "within 5 miles on either side of the route from St Louis to Kansas City). You then download all of that information as a single file from the website to your GPS and boom, you are ready to go!

    • A. You must be connected to the internet to download caches.

    • A. You will want to log onto geocache website and dump the geocache information onto the unit. It will hold thousands. It will take care of showing you the way. If you were out and had coords, this will allow you to follow lat and longs to get there.

    • A. It uses AA batteries and it lasts. We have had it since Thanksgiving and have used it about every weekend and I still have a full battery. I would always carry extra though... just in case.

    • A. ON mine, I get probably 8 to 10 hours on a pair of AA duracells. About 16 hours with lithium ion.

    • A. So far, battery life has been good. We used "CHEAP" batteries and they didn't last a whole day. I blame the batteries for that one. "Good" batteries have lasted a couple of days.

    • A. According to Magellan if you use the energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries it lasts up to 7 hours longer than alkaline but I've been turning mine off and on for about 13 hours and it still is showing that the batteries are still around 100% if that helps any.
