I have an opportunity to purchase a Meridian Color or a Platinum model for the same price. I would like to use it for roadtrips as well as beginning geocaching.
The manufacturer has stated that Platinum also has an electronic compass and barometer. How useful are these compared to the regular compass function? The Color model obviously has color.
Does anyone have experience with these? In practice, which is the better model. I know that the color has a higher retail price. I like the idea of continuous compass, but I am wondering if the color will be easier to read without using reading glasses.
Your help would be appreciated.
