    Really, why is it "sad" that one can buy 10 GPS units for the price of
    one C&P? It is a very good deal if you are trying to navigate
    somewhere. You can buy a sextant that will let you find any significant
    island destination for under $200. You can also spend $5000 for a
    mechanical wrist watch that keeps time almost as well as a $10 Casio.
