Summary: This GPS takes me to the coordinates very well. I was extremely disappointed that it won't give me any of the information that is available on geocaching.com or even on a smart phone without becoming a premium member. I read all the reviews and none of them said anything about that. It says it gives you a "paperless" geocaching experience but that's only possible if you're a premium member I guess.
Summary: Although the GPS works fine it is not anywhere as nice as my iphone for Geocaching. it does support paperless and seems to navigate ok. I thought it would be better. This is for my wife and kids and she is frustrated with it. At around 70 bucks it wasn't cheap, but I wish I would have spent more on something better.
Summary: BE VERY CAREFUL when purchasing this gps. I received it in what seemed to be working condition, and then it didn't even load the main menu--it was stuck in the boot up screen! I called up technical support and they offered to replace it. Either way, I'm getting my GPS way later than planned and I definitely regret buying it from this shark.
"Great for entry level geocachers or as a backup GPS."

Pros: Built specifically for Geocaching so it has all the geocache info like description, cache size, attributes, cache hint, and recent logs. It also can download any pictures for each cache directly from geocaching.com
Cons: The joystick can prove to be cumbersome. The cache description and other info can be hard to read. You cannot manually update your cache "finds" number on the device. Once a cache is logged as found, it stays listed on your main list.
Summary: A decent GPS for geocaching. It comes with street maps for the entire United States and Canada and base maps (major highways) for the rest of the world. In the US and Canada you can navigate (it does NOT auto-navigate) yourself to a geocache by watching the mapping screen and choosing a route. Included is a 30 day premium membership to Geocaching.com. In order to fully utilize the features of this unit you MUST be a premium member.
Summary: I wish I had the same great experience that the other reviewers seemed to have. Now, before I start, let me disclose that I am new to Geocaching, so keep that in mind. Perhaps that would explain some of my difficulties. The good points: The unit is small and very portable. I found the display easy to read and the graphics were adequate. (hint: it helped quite a bit to look at the satellite images on [...] before heading out for more detailed information.
Summary: I liked the product but from day one I had problems. I put the supplied batteries in and it would not switch on. I checked the batteries on a volt meter and they were outputting the required volts. Resorted to Google and found that if you insert and remove the batteries up to 10 times it could coax it back to life. I had it working a couple of times using this method. Well on the third try it would not work at all.
