I am using a Garmin Oregon 400T. Having used it for several years now, it has served me well. I would need a pretty solid reason to change to a different brand now.

I use a Garmin Organ650 T. Absolutely love it and so far been my most favorite GPS we have ever purchased. Love the Camera feature the most.

My primary GPSr is the 60CSx, its been a workhorse and I haven't had any problems with it, so when the time comes I'll probably go with Garmin again. My iPhone is my backup as it lets me have access to caches I may have missed loading almost everywhere.

I started out with a Garmin GPS V (as did Madison Joe) graduated to a Garmin 60Csx and about two years ago jumped whole hog and got a Garmin Montana 650t. I love the 650t but it really is pricey for a lot of folks and I just decided that I really wanted to have the best for the sport I enjoy the most. I also have the Geocaching App from groundspeak on my iPhone...but I have to admit that I haven't used it yet to actually cache with but I'm certain I will shortly. Both of our cars have factory installed GPS and I have actually got a FTF using just the GPS in my JEEP. The Montana has a motorcycle mode and I have a RAM mount on my Harley that I can easily put the Montana on when I go Harley caching. Long answer but short answer...Garmin.

My main GPSr is a Magellan Explorist 310, in the car I use a Garmin Nuvi, and on occasion I use my smartphone with the Geocaching.com app.
