Re: What GPS to use

Well mostly we will sail the Rivers in and around the AICD Charleston to St Augustine Fl,
I want to know where the bottom is. I want to be able to see my COG and Hull Speed. I want to start going off shore more and more and need to know where the channel to the rivers are. Along the coast here you can find very shallow water 5 miles off the beach. I need to know where I am at knight. I want to start training this coming summer for overnight sailing. From my dock to Charleston is an over night offshore. So I need a all around GPS I guess?
I have a Garmin 215 Black and white that use to work o.k but the screen is starting to go.
Thanks guys for the help. They are so expensive anymore I don't to end up with the wrong unit.

Let me know if this helps.
