Re: [gpsstash] newbie gps unit

You can compare the Magellan 300 with the 315 at the sites below, I
found a Magellan 315 for $119.00 at an Academy Sporting Goods, it has 9
navigation screens, instead of 3, and has a tripmeter/odometer proximity
and target notification alarms, altitude, and many other features like
more user memory for very little more money than the new 300. It is a
slightly scaled down version of the 315, like the 310 to get the price
below 100 bucks at 99 dollars. The 300 has more battery life then the
315, I guess because its has to do less when operating. Be sure to click
on the "specifications" page link at the top right for each unit:

I have some info on line about our 315 at:
It is very versatile and we use it in the van, fishing, and on our
motorcycle too.
I am sure there are many other units with lots of great features but I
am familiar with this one and it has worked perfectly for us, and it is
our first.
