GPS Help

I have an older Lowrance GPS system and it drives me crazy. It has way too many " bells & whistles " on it. It's so complicated that every time I take it out, I have to take the manual to TRY and operate it. The manual tells you what it does, but not how to do it. Right now I use it as the speedometer on my Shroom Mobil. Does anyone have any suggestions on a cheap, simple to use one. Something you can just pretty much turn on and off, and don't have to mess with all the time. In other words, something a child can operate.

Sorry. I've got a eTrek. (I think that's what it's called.) I believe it's less complicated than yours, but I still spend more time messing with it that it's worth to me. It stays home most of the time. I use a compass and a map with greater success.

Re: GPS Help

Thanks Guys, after searching and reading reviews I bought the Garmin etrek H for $75.00 on line from Walmarts. Free shipping too. Guess I'll see how it works by next Friday.
