OK I am after a little advice here!!!

I have set my heart on the Garmin Oregon 300 Sat Nav, as I want to take my geocaching up a level, as I am really getting in to it.

The question I have is what is the best thing to do about the maps??? Should I buy the Topo UK and the City Nav for the UK. I assume this will be adequate??

I currently have a Satmap 10 but it just isn't up to serious geocaching (although I do like using the 1:50000 UK map).

What I really like about the Garmin is the ability to get directions to a site, and the ability touse paperless caching. Both of which the satmap can't do.

Can I have some advice on this from the people that know please? Any advice positive or negative please!!!

GARMIN are releasing some OSGB mapping for the Oregon/Colorado units next month - but they will only cover National Parks and National Trails initially.

I do a bit of geocaching with my Colorado. I have Topo UK on it - it's OK - but I do take OS maps of the area if I have them. I can (and do) plot the geocache positions onto a MemoryMap print out.

I was looking for a friend at the Oregon 400T. Do you know what the difference is between the TOPO GB and the European Topo map that comes with the 400T? There is only about 30 difference between 300 and 400T.

Why can't it? It's a very capable device, more than enough, indeed perhaps overkill, for Geocaching.
