    Default Garmin eTrex H advice

    Hi All,
    I'm looking to take the plunge with my first gps as we're getting the geocaching bug .
    I also do greenlaning so hoping this could be used for both.....
    The eTrex H seems to get good reviews???I know it doesn't have all the gadgets but for a newbie I'd be interested to know your views....

    I used a basic Etrex for several years and found hundreds of geocaches with it. I found it to be a very good entry-level 'workhorse'. The "H" version is basically the same with a high sensitivity chipset so is more accurate.

    As I think you know it doesn't have the bells and whistles of some of the other models but I've never read a bad review of the basic Etrex or the Etrex H.

    If it fits your budget and does what you need then go for it.

    Thanks for your advice, I think I'll go for it.......
    I tried using my phone a few times without much success so I think it'd be better to have a tool designed for the job!!!
