A quick look at the usual places shows that not many places have the price of the 3010 advertised, but most seem to do the 2010 for 1299.00 so I guess 1699 is typical street price for the 3010.

Very nice bit of kit that, Roy. Have you compared the Raymarine C120 to it? the C120's screen is even bigger than the Garmin, although a bit more pricey when you add the GPS antenna which is another 200ish. Check out mesltd.co.uk

Compared to Raymarine c 120 , Lowrance 7500 can display north up on one half and course up on the other half when your in split screen modus.
That is really useful.

If you got limited space on the dash, the Lowrance is also a smaller instrument.

Regards Roy

If you haggle around you will find that most people will give the gps aerial away quite cheaply - I paid about 50 for it - Cactus did me a great deal.

Using the Lowrance 10 inch plotter/fishfinder now for half a year and I am very pleased with the machine.

Raymarine are NO cheaper in the States - Garmin prob is because they are Yank.

Problem is you will get hit for duty and VAT - they have cracked down a lot lately.

Can the C series not do that as well?
