Has anyone seen these in person yet?? I am thinking about getting one, but would like to get some input from someone who has seen/ tried one.

The link shows this as a Lowrance, not a Garmin. Am I missing something here?

Yep...my bad

I am so used to talking/eating/ breathing GARMIN that I have a hard time spelling the "L" word....LOL Yes I mean't Lowrance XOG....I also have been looking at the Magellan Crossover...but reports on the Magellan claim that it is very "sluggish".."expect to see the hour glass symbol for awhile"

curious if the XOG is "more zippy" than the Crossover????

rumor has it that Garmin will soon be releasing their version of the crossover (rumor has it that all of the NUVI line will be crossover GPSr's)

I have a Magellan 2200T that I upgraded to the Crossover software and do not have any issues with it being sluggish. I have used it for geocaching when I was out of town and prefer my handheld for geocaching. One thing with the 2200T and Crossover, they have a very long battery charge which is very nice.
