Part of the original comment that I made could be broken down very simply; learn the how and why of whatever you are doing. Understand whatever the process is and how it works before you bypass the grass roots of the skill and become dependent on something that may always be available. Magenta lines lie. Depth sounders do not read water color. GPS units go dark. Summer thunderstorms build from nothing very quickly. Develop a skill set and then enhance it with whatever the "fad" or new technology presents.
