I'd rather have a couple or three hand-held AA-battery powered GPS units rather than any single expensive one. A hand-held can be used in a dinghy or ashore in a rented jeep. Plus there's that fall-back factor.

There's a queer 'gear' mentality among Americans that may coincide with that fascination for their grandmother's underthings.
