Smile GPS Bargain

My main GPS is a fixed mount Gamin 182 but I have been wanting a small hand held for back up and when I am not in the boat.

Yesterday my wife found, at Sam's Club, a Magellan 330X hand held. It is a chartplotter with WAAS and comes with a PC cable MapSend CD and mounting bracket and has 16mb of memory. The price was $199.00 and a $50.00 rebate brought it down to $149.00. Great price for a handheld chartplotter. I have been playing with it and it is a nice little unit. The screen is small but for occasional use and as a back up it is great.

nasty the bike is runnning well. And i am really enjoying riding it. SO gfar no close calls. It pretty funny i bought it offa buddy of mine and he has a harley (for sale currently, to be replaced witrh an aprilia) and teh wear marks on eth tires showed he pretty much roa dit straight up within 3 days of ridign it I have doubled the width of the wear pattern, out to within 1/4" of the edges

he was about a 1" frome th edges. I'm not exactly even sure why he is gettinga faster bigger bike he didn't really lean the r6....

oh well my gain i took some pics i will post them later

read the fine print! Make sure it is WAAS usable and not just WAAS capable. Big difference. If in fact it is WAAS usable, buy it!
