Re: GPS Recommendations

The 76csx floats, plus it has the marine functions. Screens are the same on the color models. Other than that,they are pretty much the same. Just go fondle them and see which how they fit and how it is to use the buttons.

I like the 76csx since I use it during duck season - with my luck I will probably drop it in some water, I figure it floating might save me a big headache one day.
I keep nature balanced - I hunt everything!

Re: GPS Recommendations

Opinion on a Rhino.....well you want a radio or a GPS? if your battery dies your out both...lose one at least you have the other.

I don't want to offend you, but how is more easy for you:
1. to have a Rino combo (GPS and Radio) in one unit and 1 extra set o f battery?
2. two sep. units, one for GPS with 1 set of battery, and the second one Radio with another set of batteryes?

Specially when you hunt without a car, ATV, you will appreciate less weight on your backpack, on a long day hunting, plus you have in one unit 2 devices.
You will set your GPS to be on track, and when you have to talk, just press the "mike", without leaving not for a second the GPS interface.

Sorry, but this is my way, and I really appreciate less weight on my pack.

Thank you
