Having wanted to get started in ages have finally decided to take the plunge. Have the luxury of some cash to spend . Going for a Garmin unit can't decide between GPSmap 62 or Oregon, any benefits of either or reasons for one or the other. Advice please

Both are good units, the 62 being a slightly newer model than the Oregon.

I have heard of one or 2 complaints about the 62 freezing up recently. But it could be a simple fix, with a software update.

Hi Hugh n Penny

Welcome to the world of geocaching

I have an Oregon 400t (so do many local cachers to us) --- it's a tad old now but I love it ... and we will continue to cache together for a long time yet

O/H has a Montana 600 ... he loves it ... I think it's a house brick

Friend has the new Oregon 600 and he loves it

I'm not very techy ... but these are good GPS's

Hope that helps
