    We're thinking of visiting The Map Store in Old Town before the event on Saturday to compare options.

I found them online for $311 after rebates. I am really tempted now. I like the way the e-trexes buttons function more than the Map 60C. But wow does that antenna make a huge difference.
    Better reception would be a MAJOR factor in my choice. Lately I've been plagued not so much by signals "bouncing" us all over the place, but completely losing the signal and having a VERY hard time reacquiring.

    We have the Garmin GPSmap 76 too.
    Great on batteries and nice big screen. It takes a ton of tree coverage to get bounce with it. We had bounce at the Bowdoin College cache woods, but none at the Brunswick Trolly Line cache where we were told to expect it. I haven't dropped it much (must protect the GPS!) And as long as we've read the logs we go right to the cache.

    I have a 3 week old Legend C. So far I am loving it. I borrowed a friends set of Topo maps and I am very impressed with the map detail. The color screen really makes the maps look great and they are very easy to navagate. I usually get pretty good reception. In the woods the compass lags a bit but eventually catches up. Entering cords is easy enough. I love the features like sun&moon, games, stopwatch, fishing calendar, etc. I don't know what is standard in the Etrex line, sorry.

    Smile Garmin eTrex Vista C

    We purchased the eTrex Vista C after experimenting with trying to get the regular Vista to work with the serial cable. We returned the vista and purchased the Vista C with the USB cable and it just works. I love USB anything. We also got the Map Source CD and it it very helpful in finding roads to locate the caches and navigate to the next cache.

    Anyone have one? Any comments?

    I use a Garmin 60c and while Team Trout said it best. It is pretty expensive if your only caching with it. But the external antenna gives you great signals in heavey cover. The 60c doesn't have autorouting and that kinda stinks but its a great gpsr but I can't figure out how to play the games
