Options for fishermen:
A growing trend towards laptops and PDAs allow for
greater detail to be viewed on these full colour
screens. Whether for real time navigation or
preplanning most people are choosing to use the mobile
tools that they already have. Our Weatherproof
GPS receiver with 15' data cable is
ideal for use on your boat.
Garmin and Magellan are the two most popular brands of
handheld GPS units. A spiking trend is the use of Bluetooth GPS units, which allow for wireless
navigation on the water.

Mounted GPS units allow a waterproof solution for larger

recommended for the more sophisticated consumer.

GPS, the old run-and-gun method of finding the right
fishing location will just be that much better! You
will know where you are, and where you are going
