I got a nice little Garmin GPS 2 for sale, offers around 60.00.

Mind you, I've also got a GPS 3 as well, offers around 100.00. It's the one with major roads and towns in it, stops you getting lost.

Or how about a Colour Streetpilot, with UK Map CD, car power cord and Data link. Cost me 750+ a couple of years ago, open to offers!

Just ring him up and tell hime you want him to build the hulls for a new race series, he generally does a good deal then.

Tony is it true that you only registered as a charity cos you saw that another Poole based charity was doing rather well?

Road nav is excellent and very up to date. I had a 176C with Metroguide and datacard) but it doesn't auto-reroute. So I got a 276C which does.

Only problem is, it used different map cd, City Select (another 145). Garmin told me that City Select only comes with the automotive kit (250), which includes fixed and portable mounts. I already had those with the 176C but found a dealer at S'oton Boat Show who sold me just the software.

Route building is pretty good, as is the re-routing.

Waiting for my speaker lead so can't comment on that one.

If you already have mounts and have problems getting the software only, buy an automotive kit for the 60C. This has mounts which you don't need but there's always eBay to sell them on. This kit is only 180! Maybe different in your area.
