Hi Melaine

Go to Garmins web site listed below and read about the GPS II PLUS. It
sounds more like a hiking unit that tracks where you have been. It
doesn't sound like it's used for navigation. It gives you an
electronic compass and position mapping.

I would think this is not a very good unit based on the description
for aviation navigation. I personally suggest either a GPS 195 or
Garmins newest all in one GPS 196. If you are considering a hand held
for your plane you could also look at their GPS 92 or GPS III models
which would be much cheaper. Go to for pricing.

Can anyone recommend this as a good basic handheld for a Cub?  Price?
