Practical Sailor Tests Two New Handheld GPS Units from Garmin
Next-generation GPSs reflect trends in handheld electronics.
Garmins new scroll-wheel Colorado 400c and touchscreen Oregon 400c offer some unique features, but their multi-sport focus falls short in satisfying all of a mariners needs. Although both new units are high-quality handhelds, testers preferred an older-generation GPS, the Garmin GPSMap 76CSx, which was the Practical Sailor Best Choice in a previous test. Practical Sailor tests compared the units features, performance, ergonomics, and price, along with how well they meet sailors needs.
