    Handheld GPS

    Hey guys. Wanted everyone's opinion on the best handheld GPS for the ski. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

    Garmin GPSMap 76 Csx

    I love mine - use it in the truck, on the water and on the trail.

    But, it may be more than you need. If you're only interested in logging your speed runs, you certainly don't need this model.

    I have the Garmin Oregon 400C. A rugged 3' touchsreen Maps preloaded this one will do it all.

    Play w/it: Use it in your truck/car/boat/PWC every time you go out. If you hadn't be sure to get your MapSource Software on your PC. After a few days, I found it (MapSource) very user friendly. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

    I have the same. I love it. I spend alot of time on the coastal areas and the pre-loaded bluechart maps are awesome.

    Here are some pics of it mounted on my VX and then remounted on my FX SHO

    Looks ghetto, but the bungees work great and the stock clip that came with the GPS holds great. 2 years now, knock on wood.

    It will take me some time to get use to it...Just like everything else, you have to use it everyday to get use to the functions.
    Was the Mapsource free online or where do you get it?

    Thanks

    +1 on the map76 series

    I have an original 76, not the color one and it's been a really great item to have for more then just baoting.

    mapsource isn't free, but you can often find used copies on ebay for the cheap.

    The 76 is a serial based bit, but you can power it from 12v connector. The thing floats!
