Re: Am I crazy to buy another Garmin GPS

I take it you are not using a chip chart in your GPS . Awhile back a friend of mine asked me to order a 72 for him, he had a 46 . We got the 72 but in the mean time he got the 46 fixed, it needed a internal bat. My bud being the cheapskate that he is asked me to return the 72 ! Point is the 46 was really old , and it still works . I had a 45 never a problem with it, in tell the external batts. leaked .So I just tossed it . West had a good deal on a 76cx . hand held, once I got over a small learning curve I find it very easy to use . Then I got chart plotter fever . I wound up with a Garmin 421 and a blue chip chart, I love that thing . And to boot now I have a back up. Unfortunately I think you have had some really bad luck with the Garmins . I would give it one more try especially if you can save your waypoints . Also I got my chart plotter from GPS
