Re: [gpsstash] Digest Number 229



Since the Magellan only displays the coordinates to .01 instead of the .001 degree, waht is the best way to enter the coordinates on the Magellan. I have one of these that I use (315) and I am trying to find a good way that will actually get me a little closer to the cache I am hunting... As it is is could be as much as a hundred feet away.....Thanks

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 degree instead of
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.
