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

  1. The XOG unit looks pretty awesome, I’ll have to look into that. My friend asked me the other day if I knew of any handheld chartplotting GPS units that could be used by themselves as well as plugged into a PC for use as a receiver for PC chartplotting software. I’m not too familiar with such things, but maybe you could touch on this at some point?

    Looks like you were pretty close to my home port of Newburyport!
    Anyways, where’d you find that nifty case for SPOT?

    I have tried the Bushnell Onix 400 and have lots of problems with it. 1. If you are still, the cpmpass remains constant but the map swings around. 2. I couldn’t get weather radar despite signing up for it and resending the signal several times. I sent it back to Bushnell who did send me a brand new one. Same problems. It works fine as a GPS but it does not load more than the temperature for weather. What has been yur experience?
