Default Hand held GPS that I can put td's into.

I fish offshore quite a bit and I prefer to use td's instead of lat/lon.I have read quite a few posts and am surprised that td's is not an issue for any of you.My hand held is on its last leg so i am trying to find another.I am looking at garmin 76 but, am not sure if you can actually plug td's into the unit or if the unit will only show td's.I appreciate all responses regarding the garmin 76 series or any unit that will do the task. Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!

I have the Garmin GPSMAP 76S. You can put TDs into the unit or convert TDs to Lat/Lon. It will also be able to show any waypoint in TDs. This is shown on pages 64 and 65 of the Owner's Manual. Take a look below; you can download the whole manual on Acrobat.

I've got a Garmin 12 that I keep as a back-up, it also takes waypoints as TD's,and displays position in TD's.

GeT on eBay and look for a Magellan 3000XL. They are cheap and will do what others are saying the Garmin will do. The Magellan or garmin are the best handhelds out there. Good luck.
