zpx606 Posted January 24, 2004 Share Posted January 24, 2004 (edited) Ok, I joined the forum a couple days ago because I have been very interested in GPS machines. Here are my desires, requirements. WOuld like a machine that would work reasonably well for the following: 1. Navigation in a small boat using Bluecharts. 2. Use in car to find addresses while on the road. 3. Use on ATV for not getting lost in backcountry. 4. Handheld use is not of prime duty but should be capable. My take so far 176c advantages--Bigger screen, data cards disadvantages--no autorouting, kinda bulky 60c advantages--much more portable, autorouting, more colors, longer battery life disadvantages--no tide tables, smaller screen. What would you guys do. I guess the feature that really is the big difference for me is the autorouting. Do you think the 176 is still a decent machine for navigating in a city? I have bought a 176c land and sea package and the final price was 650 which includes the bluechart and metroguide as well as various mounts, cables, and a blank data card. I still have time to return it though if the 60c would make a better machine. Edited January 24, 2004 by zpx606 Quote Link to comment
