Re: Munzees!

I think Munzees are great, and believe they are the natural successor to all nano and most urban micro-caches. I agree finding a dozen around a shopping centre car park is a bit pointless, but there are plenty of caches like that too, and the points element on Munzees adds to the interest which isn...

Re: New Vic GPS laws

Is this in Vic only? I often travel interstate for work and take my GPS along for a bit of caching, but of course don't have a holder in a rental car.

Of course they seem to be assuming everyone has an in-car sat-nav system, which aren't very good for geocaching.

OK, thanks for the input everyone. I have now ordered an eXplorist 600 on Ebay, from the states, US$356 delivered with swivel mount and case. Not sure how long it will take to get here.
<p>
Now I need to get some local maps for it.

Make sure you use the "Worldwide" check box on the left of the eBay screen to get units from the US, otherwise it tends to only show Australian sellers.

Ah! That makes a difference. You can see I don't use Ebay very much.

however it may be a little more expensive to buy it from an Australian retailer but cheaper if you have a warranty issue as the USA ones on Ebay wont be covered under warranty here in Australia.

New GPS - best place to buy?

Hi All, <p> I'm thinking of upgrading my 6-year-old Magellan 315 to something newer, with a colour screen, mapping capability etc. <p> I'm interested in either a Garmin 60CSX or Magellan Explorist 600. Can anyone recommend one or the other? (and I don't want to get into a Magellan vs Garmin slanging...

Google Earth

The resolution isn't great, particularly in Melbourne, it seems like the city centre and western suburbs are at a much greater resolution than the east. Anyone know if it's possible to get roads overlayed on it? Being able to read in GPX files is great, but the satellite basemap is at too low a reso...
