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.
