    Anyone have experience with a Garmin II GPS?  Have opportunity to purchase and wondering if this is OK for a newbie or save $$ for something better.....

    What are you going to use it for?
    I operate an $85 Etrex handheld that
    has more capabilities than I can use.

    Just going to use locally east coast IRL, ML and wondering if i could use on trip this spring to Honduras. Really looking for ease of operation....might need a "GPS for Dummies" :-?

    You planning on needing a map feature,
    or just marking waypoints. I rarely use mine except
    to measure hull speeds or to reference a spot
    to check it's location on aerial imagery.
    Most of the time the gps is in dry storage.
    I fish shallow so what I see tells me where I am.
