Back in Sept of 2002, I bought a Magellan GPS attachment for my Handspring Visor Neo. I didn't know what I wanted to do with it, just thought it would be cool to mess around with. Then upon gloating on my new acquisition, a co-worker pointed me to www.geocaching.com and said, "all of these people have hidden treasure just for you, Tony, go find it!" Well, the rest is history and now I've purchased an Etrex Yellow for my girlfriend a few months ago. She in turn bought me an Etrex Legend for Father's Day.
The Magellan GPS Attachment ($149) has served me well! I bought the licensed version of Geoniche $24.95; (see it on [url=http://www.palmgear.com)]www.palmgear.com)[/url] it has pointed me to many caches.
If you want to combine your Handspring Visor (Palm OS) with GPS/geocaching, THIS is the way to do it!
It plugs in to the Visor, via the Springboard Module 'jack'. It runs on its own 2 AA batteries, which last 10-12 hours. I use NIMh rechargeables. I don't use it for street navigation, so no maps are included. Here is link to Magellan's site of the Companion. http://www.magellangps.com/en/products/product.asp?PRODID=109
I'll part with the Companion & Licensed Geoniche software for $75/BO (+ $5 UPS Ground). Please email me @ b_and_usNOSPAM@yahoo.com if you are interested.
