The Admiral gave me early Christmas present. It is my first handheld GPS and I was wondering if anyone has any tips or tattles for this unit. Thanks guys!
Download it here. The app is searchable in the Google Play Store under Sailboat Owners.
Sorry iPhone/iPad users, we are still waiting on Apple. :(Click the X in the upper right corner to make this go away

Purchase the database for your geographical area and then read the book and upload the database. Then read the book some more. I am not being sarcastic about read the book, there is a considerable amount of setup stuff that applies to you and your location and preferences. After you achieve some level of mastery of this unit, if you race, it is the best thing since sliced bread for determining time and distance to the start mark. But you have to create that mark as an MOB and the rename it. I create a mark at the start line, next to the committee boat ( windward end of the start line) I then use the mark as my reference in time and distance to the mark relative to my fleet start time. If you don't race, the the plotter is great to keep from getting lost!
