Don't think you can beat that.

Best feature is that it has NMEA output, so you could hook it up to your radio (or any other NMEA device needing position) if you wanted.

Looks like a good deal. Although I suspect its not Marine waterproof. Would be nice to be wrong. Buy it quick before they all go.

Good steer this - just ordered one. Been in the situation with complete electrical failure - no VHF, no GPS. It's sooo embarrassing having to use the mobile phone!
