How about a used venture hc for $65 shipped? The "rubber band" has come loose but you can search the site for advice on that.Find the right glue. Works fine( I will check it again tomorrow). Let me see, color screen, hc, and I can slide you the topo maps you need in full. I have sold here before and had no complaints.

the used venture hc.


Hi. Don't mean to hijack the thread. I wanted to leave a trace of the deal on this forum so I can be bitched at in public if there are any problems. :laughing: I have a rep to maintain here which should assure the customer. We can finish the deal by email. It comes with the cable. I will try it out to make sure all the buttons still work.
