    I have almost no experience with anything other than the Davis Mark 25 I
    own.  But I have held an Astra IIIb and others in my navigation class
    have used it.  They swear by it.  There's no question in my mind that it
    is a good piece of equipment.  I suspect it probably is about the best
    buy for the buck.
