RE: [gpsstash] Decided on GPS for Gecocaching.


I'd say 8 meg is enough if you have a notebook computer to stuff the eeprom
as you travel about. I find 16 meg is just barely enough for me as I don't
have a notebook computer. It's all a matter of how you are going to use the
emap. If you are always leaving on your trips from home, then 8 meg is
enough.

The batteries last so long in the emap I can't keep track of how long they
last, not to mention it only takes two AA batteries. I always keep those
Costco 4 pack of AAs in my backpack.
