I am excited to announce that recently, Caching Now and Berntsen, International
entered into an agreement with DeLorme to offer their Earthmate PN-40
to our geocaching friends. The PN40 is everything a geocacher could want in a hand-held GPS. With numerous map options and unlimited downloads, incredible accuracy and rocket-fast speeds, it takes your geocaching to the next level. If you’re ready to put your current GPS on EBay and step up to the next level—you’ll want the PN-40. I believe it to be the best GPS on the market for geocaching—here’s why.
For convenience. The PN-40 is rugged, durable, and easy to use—even with gloved hands. It is waterproof, designed to work in high-humidity and rainy environments, and withstands
high-vibration conditions—like off-roading or being dropped—and it laughs at extreme weather (either cold or hot).
For Performance. The PN-40 includes: a 32-channel chipset, Dual-core processor for instantaneous map and satellite imagery redraws, 360° raster rotation which means road, building, and other images really are on your left or right as you look at the map and walk, bike or drive, 3-axis electronic compass that performs when held in any position—while in motion or standing still! As well as a barometric altimeter, WAAS-enabled for accuracy within 3 meters, it now supports SDHC high-capacity SD cards for fast and direct map transfer from the included maps discs.
If I were to sit down and make a list of every feature I wanted in a GPS, including a great technical support team to back it up; that list could only be filled by the PN-40. I think this is a great GPS unit and I’m proud to offer it to you for even better, faster, more accurate and paperless geocaching. When you order through Berntsen International, you will also receive a Caching Now t-shirt and baseball cap as well as a copy of Lasting Impressions—Merry Christmas!
