Re: [gpsstash] Advise on GPS purchase


I have a less well known gps receiver by Lowrance Electronics, the Globalmap
100. Its built in mapping included coastal, river and lakes with pretty good
precision. Nav aids info is available with optional software. I find it
maintains lock better than my son's new E-Trex vista in heavy cover. It's an
older unit without WAAS or compass however. They have a new unit due out
soon called an "iFinder" . I like the buttons for menu selection and
control better than the E-Trex wobble stick.

Also the Lowrance has very good water proof rating compared to most other
units and can be submerged for short times. check it out at lowrance.com
