If that's a Magellan 315, it defaults to show only two decimal places, but is capable of showing three places. Look through the menus for setup option to change it; I don't remember exactly where it is. I started caching with a 315, got very discouraged until I found how to get that extra decimal.
The 315 will do most everything you need for caching, but if it's a couple years old a firmware update (download from Magellan) will help a lot. In the earlier versions, "averaging" mode kicked in too soon, while you were still moving slowly, and didn't home in on the target very well; this has been corrected, but you'll need a cable to connect to the computer. A cable for a MAP330 will work if you can borrow one.
