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.

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.
