I need help (again!). My in-car GPS is pretty crap to say the least and I know there is a way to get your car GPS to have caches on it so you can use it to navigate to caches. So - any recommendations of a good car gps and software I would need to accomplish this?! I am still working out cache trips with paper and pencil and it is not working out for me!

I've been using the Garmin Nuvi 200 for about a year now and love it. It's on sale at Walmart for around $120.00 I think. Any of the Garmin Nuvi's will work well for what you want to do.

I've got a Nuvi too...it works slick. You need to be a premium member and to download GSAK ($25) and Poiloader (free) to your computer for loading pocket queries on it and Google Earth (free) for caches along a route. Set up is relatively easy...I'm a non-techie and was able to do it Here's the Garmin site with set-up directions: http://pilotsnipes.googlepages.com/index.html
