Question

Is this GPS programmable for boating applications?

Does it have water/ocean maps? Or is it primarily for the geocaching? I want a GPS for when I am boating and for ocean trips, would this be a GPS for my applications?

My sis-in-law has one and it seems to be best suited for Geocaching. I would suggest finding a boating GPSr that can load custom waypoints if you need that as a priority but want to do both.
