Car GPS (Navigation)
The Geomate.jr is extremely easy for youth (and adults) to use thanks to its no-setup design and huge database of preloaded cache coordinates. Water-resistant and shockproof design should handle the occasional drop and splash with ease. The capability to save a Home location means that the Geomate.jr won't leave you lost in the woods.
The lack of an internal compass means you have to be moving to get accurate direction information. Having to purchase a proprietary connection to update the cache database is slightly annoying. USB would be better, we think.
The Geomate.jr sits in a class of its own as a child-friendly and easy-to-use handheld, geocaching device.
