    Well you could start out super cheep. Get a bunch of caches under your belt and look at friends GPSrs and find out what you really want.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    We really like the 60CSX. We had a GPSMap76 which was a good unit too and we gave that to our daughter when we upgraded.
    If you want to try cross country skiing, start with a small country

    True but making a good decision on one now will make me feel better than having to spending more money later on another model i might like better. but thanks for all the good advice it will be a little while before I have the money and decide anyways in the meantime I will still use my car nuvi 750 and just have to be careful I don't drop it.

    Get a case at Wal mart or some place. They are in electronics. I have one and it is fantastic.

    Go to a Pawn shop....Get a cheap handheld there. That will give you an idea of what you really need. A little yellow Garmin will do you for a while. I use my handheld Garmin Vista Hcx in conjunction with my Nuvi 200. They make finding caches a breeze when used together.

    I've never used a nuvi, I just wanted to comment and say, that's an awesome shirt!

    so you like homebrew eh?? I think I recall a few people on this site that like beer...
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    Default Nuvi's are OK

    I still have had great luck with my Tom Tom. Another alternative.
    Happy Trails!

    Thumbs up my choice...

    I still enjoy my kayakerinme navigator tag-along unit.
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    A lot more company than a talking black box on your dash!
