I may be in the minority, but we compared the Garmin 76 map and the Loranz (sp?), and found the Loranz colour screen a bit larger and easier to read (even the handheld one), and got a better price on it than the Garmin.

As well, the salesperson said they used to carry Garmin, but switched to Loranz because of better customer service with them. We have been very pleased with it so far after one season use.

I was initially a bit intimidated by the idea of GPS (technologically challenged ), but the Loranz can be operated in a very basic way, and then the manual shows how you can do more advanced stuff on a different setting, so it allows you to "grow" with it as your comfort increases.
