    It was what I ordered. It came on time. It was not damaged. I have yet to use it.

    Garmin s 72H is an adequate, low cost, navigational tool. I use it exclusively for Marine navigation when I am in areas I have not visited before. As an "old salt" I use paper charts and guide books for planning and prime navigation - but the GPS puts me right on the bouy marker I m heading for. Time, speed, and other features are helpful but not critical for me. It is easy to use once you figure out the data input process. The manual could have been written much more clearly and thoroughly. It is the weakest part of the deal.

    I bought this for my boat to be used as an anchor alarm and NMEA GPS backup.

    It s purported to have a "high-sensitivity" receiver. However, it wouldn t work inside my house even though my Qstarz BT-Q1000X has no problem receiving 13 satellites in the same environment.

    I tested the anchor alarm. Folks this is useless. It gives a little chirp-chirp-chirp ONCE. And that s the only alarm you re going to get. The first time it went off I didn t even hear it. I found people making the same complaint about the model 76 and that Garmin had issued a software update that caused the alarm to continue until reset. Thinking they might have issued the same update for the 72H, I bought an over-priced Garmin mini-USB connector cable and installed the WebUpdater software. It found my 72H and begin the "Updating Software" process. This never ended. Several hours later I quit the software and when I turned the 72H back on, it wouldn t advance beyond the startup screen.

    I called Garmin "technical support" and after waiting for twenty minutes was told all I can do is return the unit to be repaired. That was when I realized I d been garmined.
