Reliable, easy to use techno-gizmo

Lawrence Bird, Amazon
27 March 2007
  • Summary: I’ve had my 72 for nearly five years. Admittedly we don’t use it all the time, but together with a chart and the sort of planning sailing skippers are supposed to do anyway, it has gotten us up and down the Chesapeake Bay and the lower Potomac – reassuring on overnight trips and has proven great at...

Product features Stop working

R. Nykster, Amazon
27 March 2007
  • Summary: I bought the GPS 72 for kayaking because it floats and it has tide tables. At the turn of the year the Tide Tables started to display, "Inaccurate Results" and it stopped showing tide data. I contacted Garmin and they basically said, "Too bad. Buy a new one because we stopped supporting this unit.

Odd, but a good value.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
27 March 2007
  • Summary: I sail year-round in New England. I need back up GPS units in case my main power fails. This is good for what I need. The odd thing is that while the unit does not display a chart, it does display bouys. It is tricky using this feature, because you don't easily know how far apart the bouys are.

Lodestar, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought ours in 2003 while prospecting at Rye Patch, Nevada. There weren't many choices but after all these years I have always been so glad we got this gps unit. We have used it all over even diving on a submerged geocache.

Excellent handheld GPS receiver

Fabbian G. Dufoe, Amazon
27 March 2007
  • Summary: This is a great GPS receiver. I use it as the primary navigation instrument on my 32' catamaran. I have a cable that draws power from the boat's 12VDC system and provides speed information to the other instruments. It has been supplanted by the 72H which has a USB connector.

Waste of money

Mark, Amazon
27 March 2007
  • Summary: Spent quite a bit money on this new worked great, then they turned off the tide data. This was the best feature. The only thing I really used it for. Now I'm up the creek. Do not support a company that leaves their customers with equipment that renders itself useless after a year or 2
