GPS QUESTION (GARMAN)

4 posts in this topic

I am not very familiar with GPS's and the differences between them. Someone wants to sell me a Garman III PLUS for $150. It is about 3-4 years old and I'm not sure if it is worth it. He has the vidio, CD-Rom and manual. It seem's to be in very good condition. He has only used it a few times.

My primary use for this will fishing (ice and open water) and 4-wheeling.

Can anyone give me some feedback on the unit.

For being that old and at that price make sure it has mapping capability and plenty of memory.

I have a III plus, and have been very happy with it. I have uses the Lakemaster software to upload waypoints from the mapping software to my GPS. It works very well.

That said, $150 seems a bit steep for a unit that is about 3-4 years old.

I bought mine for $99 three years ago when Office Depot was closing them out.

Gissert...

Thanks for the info. Do you use the Lakeview software for the lake maps or are you using it just for the waypoint information?

I am going to see if he will come down on his price a little.

Thanks Again... Sunrise...

    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.

    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles.
