With the sc1000 it is limited to GPS speed, and a couple of other things, with the sc5000 it is fully integrated, so that you have fuel to next waypoint, course to steer to next waypoint and so on - with the Navman stuff it is all on the one screen, so that is a replacement for the sc5000 and a GPS all in one - added to the fact the sc5000 screen isn't the best in the world and it is an expensive unit, I will probably be fitting a Navman unit to the 2006 demonstrator that we are building at the moment - with a Verado 250 on it!
If you go to the Navman website and look ofr the Smartcraft compatible units you will see the amount of combined information is extensive.
