ccriders is on a distinguished road
My only complaint with a hand held is that when the navaids are spread out and you zoom to the level that shows the relevant navaids/visible objects, then you loose depth information making it difficult to plot a route to a destination that is several miles away and see depths at the same time. Oh yeah, another thing, with the garmin 76 there are two pagess that I use most often yet cannot toggle between the two, but have to go through the loop to get to the previous page. They are however remarkable little machines for finding a channel and staying in it.
