What GPS to buy?

Though I only have exp. thru selling it, at the moment, not sailing with it, the little Magellan Map330M seems like a great unit. Customers of mine use it for street use (car and motorcycle and ATV) and for water use, around here in E. TN and in the Keys, where there are many more details on basic database. One did say that there was one marker in the Keys that they had to make a waypoint for, but that other than that, the unit had everything just right. Costs around 270.00, including a CD for more street detail. Of course, it also gives you the excellent nav pages to steer back to a waypoint. Though I know everyone''s going to Garmin, please check out this really affordable unit.

Best wishes,
