    I used an Explorist 610 a few years ago for a bit while caching, solid enough unit. The biggest drawback for me was the screen, if you're used to a capacitive screen on a phone it takes a bit to get used to the pressure needed for a positive "click". Nice thing about not getting the latest and greatest is they all come with bugs when new that get worked out over time so the GC should be a nice starter GPS without a lot of the frustrations..
