Been reading this thread and wondering how much a GPS would cost for use with either Tsunamis or C-Map and what types do you guys recommend ??

maxsea is the way to go especially when you turn on the 3D/2D and can see in 3D what is underneath you are you above that deep channel youve been hunting for and also maxsea shows all the wrecks currents tides its pooh hot
