Re: [gpsstash] Digest Number 229


I've got the 310 and it's a pretty good little unit. The batteries last for a
long time and it's waterproof. I'm not sure that I'd recommend it for
geocaching though. It only displays the coordinates to .01 degree instead of
the .001 degree that is usually posted on geocaching.com. I think that the
eTrex has a few extra features that are nice to have and is probably worth
the extra $20.
