Gps Nav

Hi All.

Apologies if this has already been asked. Anyhoo what im after is a simple Janet and John style GPS nav to find wrecks that I already have the long and lat for. I dont want a fiddly thing that I have to have a degree in nasa technology for.

I want a point and shoot sort of thing. Is there a product out there that somone can recommend. Much appreciate any suggestions.

Depends how easy and how much you want to spend, somelike an Garmin Etrex is cheap and will get you to where you want to be, the downside been you'll have to work out which way to steer to get the lat and long to go the right direction.
Alternatively you could buy a plotter, you can put your cursor on the wreck, click go to cursor and away you go, it'll cost more than a simple hand help GPS though.

Spot on, the eTrex H is only about 69 pounds and will provide a compass screen showing the distance and direction to the wreck.
