Re: Am I crazy to buy another Garmin GPS

I got the 76cx deal at westmarine...blowout price and its rock solid, I used it for motorcycle riding too where mud, grass and all sorts of dust and crap got all over it not to mention fully waterproof, I also bougfht the hardwire kit with it

great signals...I dont use 10 percent of what it can do, basically I just use it for simple lat long and compass bearings that I switch screens to and from...

I also love the option of big NUMBERS that lets you chose what you want to see, like cmg, bearings, etc...

for motorcyle riding I used the "plotter" function since it does better with land stuf that is already built in...

x2 on older gps...they are even more bullet proof except that most have that funky stowable antenna that you kind of pointed around to get a better signal...jajaja
