With all the hype and all the many different models out there its hard to find or know exactly what you would need. I am looking for a GPS receiver not spending any more than say 4 - 450 on and have looked some at teh Triton Series Magelleans and have also looked a little at some of the Garmins. As far as dependable, durable, user friendly what do you suggest? I know I have said my limit is 4- 450 is there a need for that price range? should I spend more. I do a pretty good bit of hiking in Alabama(where I am from) and mainly when hike I have used nothing but maps. I know this will help out in this area alot so What does everyone think?

I read that some Garmins only work from PostCodes which would make it hard to use for GeoCaching I suspect.

But then I'm completely new to this, so what do I know?

I use a Garmin Legend HCx.... color.
Really like the color screen, and the better antenna.
With most these handhelds you will need Garmin topo maps.....
Well do need is wrong, but to see the area in topo you will need something.
That's an extra cost....unless you know someone who has it, and will load it in for you.
Seeing your area your in in topo really makes a nice difference..... specially if your traveling Mountain terrain.
:p :p
