Hand held GPS

I have a hand held Magellan GPS, Sporttrak I think it is called. It has not given me any troubles, has long battery life and is very accurate with speed, location and heading. I am sure it is not as feature filled as the Garmins but for me and my 23 foot sail boat it does fine since I use mostly to measure my over the ground speed, anchor alarm and distance to an anchorage or mark for a turn.
