Posted by DudleyGrunt on Oct. 19 2009,7:40 amA friend who is insterested in checking out geocaching just got a Magellen GPS 2000 off e-bay for $40. Personally, I think that's way to much for a nine year old unit.
However, has anyone used one for caching and have any thoughts. I guess it could be servicible for the first so many caches, but since you can't connect it to a computer to load waypoints or update its software, I don't think they'd use it very long.
I tried to get her to tell me what she was bidding on, but never heard back until she got it in.
Posted by PC Medic on Oct. 19 2009,1:02 pmCertainly would not be my first choice for a geocaching unit, but a seasoned GPS user could probably make do with it in a pinch. Being her first I hope its lack of abilities does not discourage her from the sport.
I agree with you also on the price. A few dollars more and probably could have picked up a Garmin eTrex yellow. When she does decide to move up to a better unit may also have trouble getting any money back out of that old unit.
