  10. I can go to the cache page and download the gps info to Easy GPS. Then I can upload this to my MeriPlat through the serial cable.

  23. All I am brand new to GPS. I am looking into purchasing a hand held unit. I will be using it mainly for marking fishing spots/hunting spots. I am trying to decide between the new Garmin GPSMAP 76S and the Magellan Meridian Platinum. I know the Garmin hot spots will cover the main lake (GASTON) that I will be fishing. I don't know if magellans topo map will cover that lake or not. Thanks for the help Dave
