Handheld GPS Maps Marine

8 year Garmin Colorado 400c now has a broken rubber Rocker/ Zoom spinner. The unit is discontinued and parts do not seem to be available.
Very disconcerting, because it works.

New handhelds seem to be very very disappointing and uselessing, rather than make a decent 4" to 5" handheld with charts Garmin wants use to by some xxxxx 78cx version with 2.3 " screen so they dont cannabulize their sales. Screw that, Opencpn on Android withSamsung solves the whole problem!

When the 400c goes, I'm kicking Garmin off the boat!
I'm finished with them. Used to be good, no longer.
