    Has anyone had any experience with one of these? Several retailers will have them for 150 on friday - or one can be had for 150 online.  Just looking to use it for inshore GPS and for the price you get a bigger screen than a handheld.

    I too would love to hear a review on this one from someone here, read alot of online reviews and most seem positive, but you never know until you know. So anyone got one?

    I checked out the demo unit at basspro - its a good unit for the money but i passed after finding out there is no way to upload/download tracks, waypoints etc. They have to be entered manually. I'm currently altering a nextar road gps to use noaa maps.

    hmmm, that is a downer, however I think I would be entering them on a handheld anyway instead of uploading. Really I just want one so I don't get lost and it has most of the features I need, with the fishfinder being a big bonus to me :)

    post up about modifying the gps you have, I'm sure many would be interested and like to know the involvement and costs.
