I know there are lots of other GPS threads but I'll try and make this specific: I've narrowed it down to getting a Nuvi 260W or 255W and it's pretty much a difference of price now. However, although its main purpose will be road navigation, I'm looking into doing some light geocaching. Is it possible with both models to input exact coordinates (instead of just an address)?

Thanks

We have the 670 and you can enter coordinates but I don't know about your models. You can download the user's manual from the Garmin website and check for yourself.

To anyone with the same question: I went ahead and got the Garmin Nuvi 255W and yes you are able to enter coordinates. So far it works great!
