Hi there....Your post seems to jump around a bit, not an issue, but lets
start at the beginning/basics. It looks like your looking to buy your first
GPS. If you're looking to use it for geocaching, there are certain features
that are a consideration. For other uses, (car navigation, boating,
canoeing, hiking, etc.) there are other features that you may wish to have.

Maybe give us an idea what uses you have, and what sort of budget, and we
can give you some clearer answers. Another option, is to join up with some
other cachers, and ask in person, maybe get out caching together a time or
two, and see what things are about. Depending on where you live, there are a
lot of cachers that are more than happy to do so, and also often there are
events, both 'official' and impromptu for cachers getting together where you
would be more than welcome as well.
