Handheld GPS''''s below deck

I have used both a Garmin and Magellan bellow deck. Both had a portable antenna that you could mount near a hatch or window. I found both systems would loose signal quality from time to time. I finally went to a fixed mount GPS with external antena.

If you plan to hook up to a laptop, go with a fixed mount. If not, a handheld is just fine.
