Does anyone know where to look to find an inexpensive GPS... I hate to spend alot if all I am using it for is geocaching. Husband always has ours. Looking for like a Gecko or Etrek. Dont tell me EBAy... refuse to go on there anymore after getting ripped off twice in one week.

Check the low price guarantee at Gander Mountain. They have [or had] a double the difference discount policy when we bought gear there earlier this year.

The way it works is that if you take the best legitamately advertised price to them, they will double the price difference and take it off of their regular retail price. Example, if they regularly sell that E-Trex at $105, A current competative offer of $99 would bring GM's price to $93.

Even better. Then you don't have to pay shipping.

Yayy... I went against my previous statement and went back to Ebay... even though I got ripped off twice form them... tried again. Sat and watched the bids, placed one just minutes before it finished and snagged a GPS. It is an older model, but still have one to go out on my own now! Now I just have to wait for it to come in the mail! Woo Hoo!

Found out that there is a big difference in GPS's! I picked up a Magellan GPS300. it only has two numbers after the period on both lat and long... and goes to zero after .01.... not much good when you need to go into feet. Oh well... guess it was a learning lesson. Gets me close, just have to use more brains... I can use it for other things and save up for one that works the way I want to.

Hey Weezul...

I'd just turn right around and put the thing back on Ebay... Maybe you could even make a couple extra bucks to boot???

Just a thought
