I have been reading about Geocaching and was wondering if it was possible to use a Garmin 305 to find a GPS location?

Hmm, the 305 won't give you a grid coordinates, but you might be able to do it indirectly by storing a path in it that goes to the grid location. Bit of a faff though.

You can with the 405, I've done it.

You can enter a location, and the compass arrow will point the way, I thought the 305 had the same functionality......

Don't know, I guess I shall have to dig out the instructions, unless anyone else has any ideas?

you can enter the latitude and longitude in degrees and also the elevation on a 305

Thanks for the advice. It worked! Took my daughter out, and we found 2/4 caches. Garmin worked great once I worked out what I was looking at! And It got small person away from the Xbox for a change, treasure hunting is soooo much more exciting than just "going for a walk with Mum". We're hooked!
