    Default New Satellites!

    Anyone heard of a Trimble GPSr?

    And new satellites are going up!

    Trimble makes many high end GPSrs used by surveyors and the like. Use a Trimble for a week and you'd probably think the units we use came in a Happy Meal!

    One of their lower end units, the GeoXH has accuracy in inches and sells for about $3000.

    DNFTT! DNFTT! DNFTT!

    It seems Trimble made the Loran unit that I used to have in my airplane.

    I think you should all pitch in so I can buy a Trimble and use it to make my hides cords even BETTER than they already are....

    I think the whole fun is in trying to find the cache and not having it right under foot with something that is so accurate as to within centimeters.

    Now, shouldn't this one be in your thread "Controversy"?

    I use a Trimble at work with a four foot antenna. The accuracy is unbelievable (we have been using it mostly to map plant beds and it will notice a difference of a few inches on a cloudy day) but I still prefer my Etrex for caching.
