[aprssig] What is the best GPS Data RX on the market now?

I did a bunch of research in trying to find a replacement for my GPS-III.  >From what you describe, any GPS that has good support for Geocaching should support your needs.  I'm not related to Garmin in any way, but their GPS Map 60CSx has a built-in altimeter and magnetic compass, and pretty sensitive receivers, it would be worth a look.  It's basically the same as my eTrex Vista HCx, but it has a serial port (and is in a big ugly package).

Just stay away from the car-oriented ones.

Good luck,

Greg  KO6TH

I just 
remembered Brent wrote Waypoint+ before APRSsa. I think I have a copy somewhere 
but if not he may still have it on the web. Waypoint+ saved and transfered 
waypoints for the Garmin and then eventually evolved into APRSsa which I was 
lucky enough to Alpha test. Other than a memory hog I loved that 
I just 
want to save everything up and keep it safe till I either get the GPS fixed (I 
doubt I will bother) or decide on what other GPS I will use for the property and 
navigation. I got 30 acres here of pine tree farm and use a handheld GPS very 
often to get distances and bearings, a lot of the property can not be seen from 
other spots due to rugged terrain. As we have all seen GPS's have changed from 
the days of the GPS II, III and V, they have some neat displays and features now 
but have also been taken mainstream consumer which I call "stupified". Lack of 
serial data, lack of technical display screens...it's going to be a tough
