    Garmin GPS 76S

    I found one new in box for $100. Is this a good GPS for geocaching?

    If this is a GPSMAP 76s, it will do okay for caching. Doesn't have a lot of built in memory and don't know if you can add that. You can upload Garmin maps (there is a free map resource I'm going to send you for topo maps). I cannot tell how many waypoints you can add, but it looks like 1000. Probably a good buy..

    Thanks for the reply. I think I am gonna spend my money on something a little more up to date like a Garmin 60CSx or Delorme PN-60w.

    I was pretty surprised. I've been fed up with my Lowrance and finally had enough of it when the maps didn't work for a second time. So she got on the Internet and found it. She remembered the one I was talking about a couple months ago when my Lowrance messed up the first time. I will definitely be out caching this weekend. Thinking about making a run to Jonesboro area to find a couple state parks. CF55 had mentioned possibly going to Tulsa though.
