I bought the Nuvi 500, it's made for geocaching. I just drop a PQ in and I'm ready to go. It shows all the caches on the map and cache info. Plus you can log them in and the map shows them found. It's a good tool for getting to close parking most of the time. Then I use my other gpsr.

I got my wife the nuvi 200 for Christmas a few years ago. Sounds like she needs an upgrade for Valentine's Day! Smile

That would be soo thoughtful and I'm sure she would love it!

I can load caches into my nuvi 260 as waypoints. I have a GSAK macro for it. I can get cache info, recent logs, attributes, etc on it. It also dings when I am within a certain distance of a cache.

If take your cords and you look on Bing maps using the "Birds Eye View" and zoom in or out a bit, you will see all the new construction with the off ramp and other stuff there now. So, long story short, not sure if your coords will work anymore? Or, maybe you have first hand knowledge or better map than the Bing one (Which I have found to be WAY WAY WAY more current than anything from "googly". Good luck.


Here is the public anouncemnet and the address given is very close to John's coords:

Notice is hereby given that a quorum of the Orono City Council may be present at the Lurton
Park Dedication that will be held at the Susan E. Lurton Park located at 3580 Wayzata
Boulevard West, just east of the intersection of Highway 12 and County Road 6 on the north side
of Wayzata Boulevard, beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 29, 2011.
