Re: Handhelp GPS
I did find the eTrex Mariner on www.garmin.com, although it wasn't
easy. I went right to the User's Manuals link, and found the Mariner
under the "Outdoor" category, not under "Marine". You can page
through the manual there. I think the Mariner may have been
available using the Product Comparison link that is sometimes
available, too, if I'm not mistaken. Apparently it's identical to
the Venture model, except for it's white rather than transparent
case, and of course it has the Navaids data preloaded into memory.
You pay an extra $10 for that. I'm interested in a unit for sailing
and kayaking Lake Superior, but haven't been able to find out if it
has Navaids for the Great Lakes and other inland waterways, or if it
only has salt water coastal coverage. Do you happen to know about
that, or about what PC software would be handy for creating and
managing waypoints and routes, for uploading to the Mariner?

I am planning to buy their new E-trex Mariner: It has twelve
channels for fast positions, and a marine Aids to Navigation database
built in. This all for only a little more than the first one
($179). It only seems to be available from West Marine - it is not
shown on the Garmin website.
