CaptainForce will become famous soon enough
For a number of years I kept a Garmin 76 at my binnacle with a plug to connect it to my 12V supply. I was pleased with it until I found that all of it's tide and current data was obsolete as of this past spring. I purchased a Garmin 440 for our trip up to Maine from Florida and our return this november. I'm not fond of interfacing much of my equipment, so I don't have the model that allows for the depthsounder or radar interface. The built in chart data is quite sufficient and the images and ****** is large enough for my "old guy" eyes. All these devices are subject to error or lacking updates of local marker moves; therefore, I'm always aware that the real world trumps the cyber world. In summary,- it's a great GPS for me.

We've got the Garmin 545 which is the 1-inch bigger cousin of the 440. Definitely not junk--we love it. Can't suggest what you should bid though.

You will need the vision chip +/- $300 for your area. Great machine for the price. Small screen.

I got a email today from West Marine, 440S is $449 + 10% off until monday, That would be $404, I wouldn't pay more than 1/2 for used electronics.
