Who would have guessed!  <G>

I have the 18 and 18x.  The 18 has been out on the roof for some years, 
and continues to work OK.  The 18x did stop working once but was 
repaired FoC by Garmin (as it was another firmware defect).  Yes, it 
took Garmin months rather than weeks to issue a formal fix for the 
problem, but that's probably typical for a large firm with lots of QC 
delays.  I would continue to recommend Garmin, just as I would the Sure 
board (even though one of their supplied antennas failed), ad I would 
the Adafruit GPS module.




None of these are perfect, but non are high-priced items either.
