Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Garmin will network its super VHF to integrate DSC and AIS for Touch-the-target autodialing.

    There ya go, Sandy…and I further predict that Garmin will develop smaller touchscreen MFDs. Despite the skepticism they work pretty darn well.

    The resolution is 240×400 (colorado) according to Garmin web site. Also wrong on previous article.

    Hi Guys.. I am confused … I want to buy a new hand held .. (while I wait for this recession to take integrated system prices through the deck so to speak..) Right now in Singapore I can only get my hands on a Garmin GPSMAPS 76CSx or a 60CSx… The reviews I read on the Oregon and now Colorado 400C’s are b*tching about too many levels of menu’s or visibility (and I must say with my work PDA’s I have gone back to buttons rather than touch screens cos they dont last) .. In your opinions are Oregon and Colorados a step forward or sideways in terms of a ‘will do the job for 3 years’ basic coastal navigation back-up system for a trawler style (ie 10 knots) liesure craft? Your thoughts please.. rgds Peter.. PS I am going to hang til release and install the Raymarine AIS500
