I don't have any experience with that exact model but if geocaching is the primary use I would avoid a model like that. Otherwise it looks spiffy.

Its built for road routing. Its probably not as sturdy. It may be lacking important features used for geocaching, like a compass direction finder or off road routing. The touch screen might not be the greatest interface when you're caching. In my mind, its purpose built for a different purpose and there are similarly priced models that are much more suited for geocaching. To each their own though.
