Yep I download about 1000 caches into my gps in about 30 sec.

I have an Explorist 200 that you can't do anything but manually
enter coordinates for caches into. It takes me about thirty seconds
to a minute to enter them and name them something to keep up with
what's what. Is that too time consuming for most people? Are the gps
units that you can do the download stuff that much faster? Can you
pump a bunch of geocache coords in in a second or two or what's the
deal? I'm happy, but would I be a lot happier with download
capability? Sell me on it, I'm willing to listen...
