To hijack this thread a bit, I sail with a built in Garmin GPS on my 33' boat. While I should be much better at reading the charts (which I do keep on board), I must admit I am a "video game sailor" entirely too reliant on the GPS when in unfamiliar waters in the Chesapeake.
I want to get a handheld as an emergency backup to the built in that can also be used for hiking and the likes. Any recommendations or do the same as above apply? I am not even in need of color as it is more for emergency purposes.
