My post has gotten a lot of good responses that will take some time for me to sift through. Thanks to all.
Iharmon Ė thanks. I do like your approach. I do like to play with the technology but I also love to sail. Last summer, I found myself turning the GPS off numerous times because all it was doing was draining the batteries. Iím still evaluating what the thing is really good Ė when and how Iíll be using it. I canít say that it adds to my sailing enjoyment but if it adds to safety then Iíll use it as an aid. Last summer, I found myself often over using it because of the learning curve. Iím spending some time here at home over the winter playing with the software and hardware so Iím better prepared and not distracted when Iím back on the water. Hence, the reason for my post.
