My second was the GPS-II+, which is also still running just fine. I
was into GPS'es way before I was into APRS, and I used a
microcontroller board I had to display the GPS info on an LCD
display while I was driving.
The old 8-channel Garmin receivers were really 1-channel receivers.
Those were crap. I used them in the woods in the form of a GPS-45.
There were several that were in that category, the 38, 40, 45, II,
and probably some others I forgot. The unofficial Garmin FAQ lists
most of them (not from Garmin, but from Alan Holdcroft).
