Hand held GPS recommendations ??

 Gday FW crew,


I want to replace my hand held GPS that died 18 months ago, has anyone bought a good unit lately at a bargain price?


Also - I sent my fucked one to a fella in Mandurah area but have lost his details, he was recommended on here.


My unit was too far gone to retrieve info, I'd like to give him something for his efforts, If anyone might have an idea who that was I would like to get in touch with him.

Nothing needed TimBoon.

I try to help - it's just a hobby i have trying to help guys out with dodgy electronics and all the shops want to do is sell you a new one.

Again - Honestly do not want anything mate. All good. Cheers
