    Which gps unit....?

    Im gonna but a gps unit and had decided on a garmin etrex legend c. After doing some research I came across a few that interested me. The etrex cx has expandable memory which is good. Then the Magellan SporTrak color is really nice too.

    Anyone care to reccomend a few?

    I want one with a color screen for sure, other than that other options are just extras. Price around $180-250....and that's ebay price!

    So far I found the etrex legend cx for $250 sihpped and the Magellan SporTrak for $200 shipped.

    Look at the Garmin 76C and then you can get the glovebox mount for the RXT as well.

    What are you looking for in a GPS besides the price obviously. If you are just wanting speed checks and real basic, any of the Etrex series will do. I used to have an Etrex Legend and liked it but wanted more features when I upgraded.

    What other features can you have in a gps? That does not send the price through the roof!

    Just fo rhte speed mainly. But I also want to be able to download some local maps in it.

    if i'm gonna own a GPS, i want it to have true GPS features like cartography, not jsut a blank screen with way points... that's my .02
    Will I still be able to use the glove box with the GTX one? I use it every time to put my cel phone and ID with me. I dont like it bouncing around in the hood. If so, where can I get it? And can I put that GPSMAP76 in it?

    It floats too!

    If you have a GTX hull, it HAS to be the Garmin 76 series. Not only is it waterproof - but it FLOATS too (not all of 'em do!!). You can always but the glovebox cover later I also think the screen is bigger, which deginitley helps at speed We bought a Garmin branded (instead of Sea Doo) to save money.
