Advice on HAND-HELD Marine Electronics

We're members of a sailing club, usually sailing a 25' Catalina on the Potomac between Washington DC and the entrance to the Chesapeake. The boat has a VHF mounted in the cabin and a depth sounder in the cockpit. There are no other marine electronics aboard.

What HAND-HELD marine electronics do you suggest we carry with us when we sail in these waters?

Would you recommend anything else/more for sailing the same boat on the Chesapeake?

(Please don't tell us about marine electronics that we could install; it's a club boat and we don't control that).

Thanks for your input!

Re: Advice on HAND-HELD Marine Electronics

Electronics for a non-owned sloop...VHF marine walkie talkie, your cell phone and a hand held GPS/Compass; extra batteries for the above. That's all folks!
