If you tell him Jimbo sent you he'll probably charge you double

Nope, I'm getting very good terms at the moment, he paid the VAT on my handheld, and I've only paid him 2/3 of the cost of my fixed set at present!

I would highly recomend the Standard Horizon HX270e if it is as good as the previous model I've had for about 4 years - on the RIB and when kayaking so its had regular dunkings.

The second battery pack that takes AA batteries is really useful as I just leave it in the grab bag with Alkalines in it just in case.

If you live down in the South Coast area it has to be Horizon as the serviice centre is is Winchester and you can drop off and collect next day . I broke mine and it was sorted FOC !

Can't beat a good old Navman
Tim seriously your Navman- you can't hear over the engine because the speaker is too small, the display has navman sickness and has misted up due to water ingress...I would by a Standard or Icom over anything else any day.

You are quite right, I had totally overlooked sending you a web hosting bill. I will correct my omission!

Recently got one of those too . Very impressed so far , it seems really solid and Iam amazed at the range and clarity . I haven't had to re charge the battery yet and its been used and left for about 4 weekends in a row . That extra battery pack that takes AA bateries is the best thing .
