An electronic compass is a much have in the best GPS devices for geocaching. Ideally you want a geocaching GPS where the compass works not only while you are moving but also when you are standing still and looking for the right direction for the cache.
The other big feature to look for in the best GPS for geocaching is a paperless geocaching ability. This is an absolute must for geocachers as it enables storing locations of up to 1000 caches, coordinates and clues directly on the gadget.
Like most of the best GPS devices, the best geocaching GPS also benefits from detailed maps, including street maps and waypoints specific to cache locations. Great reception is also critical for geocaching - the best options being atleast a 27 dB gain antennas.
Other features to look for in the best GPS for geocaching include atleast 10 hours running battery life, large storage capacity, IPX7 level water proofing which will keep your device safe even if submersed and a transflective colour screen for great readability.
