    Just something I would like to have. My wife has trouble breathing when we are at higher altitudes, as well as my self. She also has congestive heart problems. I want to know at what altitude we are at as we travel. Right now in Custer SD we are at about 5,315 ft. When we get around Glacier National Park is at about 5840 feet. Max altitude: 6280 ft.; We are going to have some problems breathing at 6 or 7k ft.

    Don't worry about it. I did not take your post as being nothing but a ribbing. If you can't tease friends someone has a problem. I was just stating one of the reasons I wanted to get the altimeter. On the way to South Dakota I though the truck was pulling a bit hard until I saw a sign that told me we were going up over 4000 ft. Gas mileage was going down and it down shifted quite often. The rise was so gradual that I did not know I was going higher.

    Having a good time here hope everyone else is having fun also.

    Garmin E-Trex Vista. Full color, all data as required including altitude. Used it for years backpacking and Search and Rescue: LOVE IT. Very light, fits in pocket but very short battery life!

    I have an old Magellan Merridian Gold that I've had since it was new back in 2001, but the reception isn't great. A friend of ours that we introduced to geocaching purchased a Garmin Legend HCx and in dense forest where my Magellan could only "see" 3 or 4 satellites, his was getting a strong lock on 9 or 10. Made a big difference for finding the cache...mine kept saying over here, then over there, etc., while his got him right to where the tree stump where cache was hidden.

    This summer my son and I used my iPhone for geocaching, using an app called the Motionx GPS. Great app, info available here: http://gps.motionx.com/overview/. Problem is, while my Magellan Meridian can last for 8+ hours on a pair of batteries, the GPS app on my iPhone drained my just charged to 100% iPhone battery in about 90 minutes. The price is a very reasonable $2.99, but keep the battery drain in mind, and don't get lost in the forest with a dead phone.

    Cheers,
    Chris
