It's amazing all the different brand out there......

And I'm sure to have missed something on this list.

If you have different GPS, click on your main one.

This will be interesting to see how this matches up with the same poll I did earlier in April of 2008.

Not sure how accurate it is as we have two Magellan and two Garmin and I could only vote once. It would not let me check two circles.

We have 2 Lowrance IFinders that we cache with.

I also have a Trimble unit that I have used to hide caches, but that is a work GPS.

Hmm.. I regularly use four of the brands listed.

We have a Garmen handheld which still sees some action.
We use a Tom-Tom for in-car navigation.
I plug in a Microsoft branded Pharos unit into the laptop.
But I guess our main geocaching GPS is a Delorme PN-20. (Yep.. that's me. The single vote for Delorme.)

I sorta 'manage' 12 Garmin Etrex Ventures we have at school; 4 basic Etrex's our camp owns; and Gram & I are on our second Legend... I guess I am pretty happy with Garmin!

2 Etrex Legends on the trail.
A Nuvi 200 in the SUV.
The Legends loose signals all the time, but with two we've still managed to come up with over 1300 finds in 2 years.
We've had the Nuvi for about 10 months and could never get by again without it.
Someday we'll upgrade, but we're slow. We finally upgraded from dial-up to high speed last month.

Garmin Etrex Vista HCX for my main caching unit. Others may like their big clunky (better?) Garmin's but I bought this one specifically because I want a small unit that I am confortable slipping in my pocket and it fits in my hand easily.

Everyone knows I got a Nextar Q4-04 navigation unit for Christmas. Still working on whether I can hack the thing to do custom POI's but it does come in handy when navigating unknown neighborhoods with lots of dead-ends. It's a neat unit for navigating but not really for geocaching.

I also have my original Magellan unit. It's yellow and you have to put coords in by hand. It actually produced more reliable coords than the new Garmin and the rechargeable batteries lasted much longer in it but it was slower than molasses at aquiring initial signal and the manual programming was too much work Smile

I use a Garmin GPSMap 60CSX. We bought 3 of these at the same time. One wouldn't acquire a satellite signal. Newegg.com is where we got the 3 exchanged it with no issues. A few months later another broke down, but garmin replaced it with no issues either. Other then that, I absolutely love this device.

My wife does some traveling for work so a year and a half ago we got a NUVI 200. Two days later I got a ETREX Legend HCX for atving. Two weeks later I discovered geocaching. Those are the only units I have used.
