Sorry Erin

I have just edited my post, I mixed up on the numbers. I have the 176C and the 182C.

They are both great, but I like the bigger screen on the 182C, I don't have any problems reading the display in the sunlight, I just turn up the backlight.

Regards
Rene

Very pleased with my 182C - can't wait until egnos(waas) is working though!

Hello arn.george

I was out at the weekend and think egnos might have been working. I recently deduced that satelites 33 and 44 must be egnos as they dissapear from the satelite page if I disable WAAS on my GPSMap 76. I had sat 33 showing up as locked on (although grey not black which I presume means it isn't actually receiving position data from it) and average error was showing as low as 10 or 11 feet. I also had little 'D' symbols on most of the other satelites bars which means I am receiving differential. I'm not sure if differential and egnos is the same, but it certainly seemed pretty accurate.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I think you could have been receiving a test signal. It was discussed on here quite recently. I don't think WAAS or the European equivalent EGNOS is operational as of yet. Don't want to hijack the thread, back to the first discussion.
