Re: What about Navigation

It does not recognize that there is a 100ft bluff there, if there happens to be one. So some interpretation and common sense is required.
The 60 CS has an electronic compass and after switching to off road mode it will point you to the waypoint pretty well. After we get to the area nonni finds the cache.
We do carry a laptop in the car if we are traveling overnight so that we can, if desired, send email to cache owners or log finds and DNFs. In one instance we were at a meeting in New Mexico and had chosen to fly. While in flight back home we wrote the T4RX number and then the log into a word document. Skip a space and write the next log. Then logging into GC.com after arriving at home we copied and pasted our logs.
That process and this answer would both have been much easier if I could type instead of the hunt and peck method.
