banning of sophisticated electronic aides

It intrigues me which actual devices currently in the market are allowed under the current rule, but would be banned under the new rule. Anyone got a clue?

My Garmin handheld GPS, for example. I was very tempted to go to Poole Week a day earlier to sail round and add all the major marks as waypoints. The during the race my crew could give me bearings and distances to all the marks. Arguably, it would help neutralise the advantages of local knowledge!
