GPS Wanted & other boaty bits :)

Something like the Garmin Streetpilot 3 or other GPS for use on a boat to feed location to my Radio.

Also looking for life jackets, wakeboard, full leg cover (to go over Alpha one)...

yes, know what you mean, I'm waiting to see if there's any good boat show offers on, I like the look of the 550s for my SR4 I did see a couple of the garmin GPS 2+ / 3 on eBay recently for reasonable money, less than 100, they would give you the same info

Same here. Don't know why they stopped making them! They still do them with differing software for aircraft!

I'd never swap mine..10 hours use on battery, can be hard wired, output for radio and fishy finder...:-)
