You guys and all your fancy toys. I liked the old days before we had GPSr's.
Holy crap! What's going on with my phone?
I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.
I'm having a GPSr chip implanted in my brain. Soon I'll be able to receive cache listings whenever I walk by a "hot" zone. Then I simply follow the arrow in my brain, straight to the cache!
I've said this a hundred times, being sarcastic but fearing it will come - we won't even be looking for caches, we'll have some GPS that just logs every telephone pole, guardrail, lamp post, and roadkill you pass by. And there will still be people saying let us play the way we want, look at our numbers!
DNFTT! DNFTT! DNFTT!

I went out Thursday and did 32 caches with the Oregon 550T. It seemed accurate, didn't lose the satellites once, didn't seem to drift as much as the 60csx, and I really like the way it is set up for geocaching. I took a few pictures and they came out fine. It's easy to take pictures with and shows on the map where you took them.
The only thing I don't like so far is that without the backlight on it is real hard to see the screen. When you touch the screen it comes on and I set it to stay on 30 seconds. I cached about 8 hours, took a few pictures, and still had good battery life when I was done.
All in all I am very happy with it.
Terry, I got some advice on my unit, the 400t, to set the background maps from green to white, which in some cases lightens up your screen. This might help you as well with your model. Don't ask me how I did it, but you can figure it out I am sure
