Garmin 152 GPS

Unfamiliar, untuitive (if that's a word), as user-friendly as a cornered rat.
One of our club members has just been sold one and had to ask many people to help with it.
I was one. New screens, each a base function with windows, none familiar.
All menu-driven by keys which are oddly labelled.
I suspect they've shoe-horned the software from one of the larger plotters into the GPS box - but there isn't even a map as such. There is a map page with waypoint and buoy blobs strategically placed...
If you are in the market for one PLEASE TRY BEFORE YOU BUY.

Cruising, racing, maintenance facilities. Go take a look, you know you want to.

I have one- It was dirt cheap at £130 new, and works.
Yes it is a fiddle to work, but easy once you mastered the menu.
