Okay, now I'm getting old(er) I have to become technologically savvy as my gf bought me an e30 Garmin GPS thingo for my birthday. Any tips on how to use it (I am aiming to read the destructions when I get a moment but previous experience with technology means they are probably written in gobbledygook!)

That's a pretty big ask with the enormous capability of these hand held units! I think the key things are to go into the settings menu, make sure it is in metric units and degrees minutes and seconds (not decimal minutes). Then make sure you know how to mark a way point for that small lump you paddle over and see on the sounder. I recommend you go for a walk and use the track capabilities.
The manual is pretty basic and it will have many more features
Good luck
