Many thanks for your comments. I’m of the same opinion that for dingy cruising, I can’t justify the expense of a mapping GPS. I tend to rely on preplanning using charts etc. However I can see the sense in using technology to get you out of a hole and it would be foolhardy to igore the technology that’s available. I have therefore opted for the Garmin Etrex H ( £80 -ish ) in the hope that it can at least give me lat and long of my current position if I ever need it. We’ll just have to see whether the waypoint functionality etc is of any practical use. Please don’t tell me I’ve opted for a donkey!!
