This should help http://www.gpscentral.ca/products/magellan/exploristcomparison.htm



The 100 has nothing. No built-in maps, no loadable maps, no pc interface cable.

The 200 adds a built-in map.



Realistically, you probably don't want to consider anything below a 400 for geocaching. Although the 210 might just cut it.

You have to check this out:



http://www.gpscentral.ca/products/garmin/76csx.htm



There is a $100 US mail in rebate if you purchase this unit before July 9/06. That is cheaper than the GPSMAP60CSx that I bought 7 weeks ago. It has all the features of the 60CSx but with a 128 meg memory and it floats if dropped in the water.

Canadian Tire has Garmin Metroguide Canada v4 on sale for $70, both online and in store. They also have other older/discontinued Garmin units heavily discounted.

Actually, a very nice starter unit for geocaching. Everything you could need, except for maps.

The 201 has WAAS, space for 500 waypoints, 10,000 track points, and is pocket-sized to boot. And with the connector available from syz.com ($22 pre-built or $6 for just the connector for you DIY types), you can connect it to your PC and transfer waypoints and tracks to and from the unit.

The only downside, as I mentioned, is that the 201 does not support maps in any way. But for less than $75, it's a steal.

I noticed that Costco is selling the Garman 60cx online. 4$449.00 with a $50 mail in rebate.



$399 for a 60cx. Not a bad deal.



Go to Costco.ca under camping for more details

Tag212 and Ginny212 noted the London Drugs has a Magellan 500 for $199. This week only. Probably better to order it online as they only had 1 left on friday.
