Re: Handheld GPS differences

I can't imagine relying on only a handheld GPS even color with a map chip. Even a 5 inch chartplotter is too small to see the big picture. I find my older 5 inch Garmin fine for navigation, but only after I have used my paper charts to plan the days trip and selected the waypoints.
