One last kick at the cat with the ol’ Eagle AccuNav on my way home. Knowing where I had to go, drove the geobuggy to Scotsman’s Hill and then pulled out the AccuNav. I had to navigate through 8 different windows on the GPS to enter the coordinates and then two more to set a ‘goto’. Holding the GPS to the front windshield and using something called the ‘plot screen’, I carefully navigated along the road to within 40 meters of the cap and then parked the car. Once again, orienting the GPS to the north, the plot screen showed the way to go. There went the beep, and there was the indentation in the ground. This may at one time have been quite a colorful cap.
Verdict on the Eagle AccuNav Sport: it’ll get you there, and pretty close too, but I sure miss the ‘arrow’ and the maps, and it certainly doesn’t fit into the shirt pocket – time to put it on the shelf. It was an interesting exercise though. Thanks for the cache and the hunt.
