I am not one to force a new type of toy on someone set in his ways, and I also know the ones you already own. I myself love my Meridian Gold for several reasons, one being the large screen, the second being the receptive antenna and the third would be the fact that you can upgrade the amount of memory with a very simple chip plug-in. The downside for you would be that you would have to buy a new set of software for your mapping unless you went with a free ware program on the net. The Meridian Platinum is supposed to be the "Cats Azz" when it comes to a Geocaching Mega-toy, but this unit won't be easy to find until mid february. The Platinum has many of the same features as the Vista does including the compass. A great feature in extent to this would be the amount of memory right out of the box. I am a fan of both GPSR makers but this Meridian line is a tough one to pass on. Another thing I like is how Magellan made this unit tough, it can take a beating and keep you locked. the outside shell has a wrap-around rubber protection shield that absorbs shock quite well.
You know you want one...you know you'll end up getting one, so why not just make that jump now!
