Use your imagination ,friend, get a small pocket HP pocket pc / BT gps
and some good mapping software ( fuagawi) et Voila.... there you go
one hell of a standby system AND completely portable.
This is what I use..
-HP HW 6515 ( GPS included) ( about 280$ stateside) + an extended battery.
-Fugawi 3.0 maping software.
( you will need a good scanner to get some maps into the program)
Just as a joke I used tomtom 6 in the middle of the channel last week... and it told me to turn right at the next buoy???????????????
