    Aha!  I see what you mean, and I agree with you.  I bought and used
    Nobeltec's Visual Navigator on a PC laptop for a year or two.  It had
    some neat features, but between it, serial ports, the GPS, and Windows,
    it really had a ton of quirks.  I have stopped using this system for
    Instead I bought charts on a chip for the Garmin GPS and just use the
    GPS -- with no more crashes!  I now use a Macintosh laptop with the GPS
    to download/upload waypoints and track logs.  It all works quite nicely.
    Oops -- that was electronic navigation I was talking about!  Sorry
    about that!  ;-)
