Re: Advice on HAND-HELD Marine Electronics
All handheld GPS units will give you accurate positions, it's just a matter of battery consumption and the bells and whistles. The same is pretty much true for handheld VHFs. There are some small differences in performance with VHFs, but not enough to worry about. The best options to look for, IMHO, are waterproofness (almost a given these days) that its floatable (please don't ask me about this
), and how viewable the screen is in bright sunlight.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
