Re: Over reliance on electronics
My gps is a hand held that uses AA batts. I turn it on a couple of times a day to check my D.R.'s.
Yep, that's how we do it too. Garmin 76
I guess there is a fascination with watching the bread-crumb trail grow longer - I don't have a need for that. On a voyage I plot a position twice a day. Switch on, get a fix, switch off. When I'm sailing local (coastal) the GPS almost never goes on.
And it's not about batteries.
