Re: Am I crazy to buy another Garmin GPS

Are you certain your current Garmin-format waypoint inventory cannot be somehow "translated" into a format usable by competitive makes? I have to believe there are PC based utilities available to translate one format to another. It is just a formatted data file.

If you can get your waypoints in an alternate format, that may make your decision easier. Some of the less expensive 4 and 5 inch Humminbirds and Lowrances sell at real-world prices close to Garmin's upscale handhelds. West maring recently had a 1-day sale with a 5-inch Lowrance with navionics Gold charts for $350... there'll probably be more Black Friday and Cyber Minday deals the next few days.
