New Garmin eTrex GPS receiver series

Go Green, Go Paperless: Take the powerful pocket-size Garmin eTrex GPS device with you on your next geocaching adventure and leave the paper print-outs at home. The new Garmin eTrex series supports geocaching GPX files for downloading geocache locations and details straight to the unit using its high-speed USB connection. The Garmin eTrex stores and displays key information, including location, terrain, difficulty, hints and descriptions, which means no more manually entering coordinates and those paper print outs! To start paperless geocaching, simply upload the GPX file to your unit and start hunting for caches. Caches can be downloaded from OpenCaching, a completely free online community for creating, sharing and finding geocaches around the world.
