The 2010 does have them but they are not as easy to referance to a particular area at a given time they are shown at a time before of after high/low water where on the standard unit you could focus on the area & toggle thru the time & the tidal stream arrows would change direction & strength as the time changed

Ie if we were crossing from northern ireland to the bottom of the mull we could easily check the tide direction & strength at our arrival time without having to add or subtract times lazy i know but handy

i'm not saying the garmin unit is rubbish but I think the standard gives it a good run for the money

We've had a Standard Horizon CP300 on the sailing yacht for 5+ years now, outside at the helm station, and it's been brilliant. Works seamlessly with our Digital Yacht AIS transponder as well.

No issues whatsoever with the hardware. Last year when I phoned Standard one day to ask about some strange behaviour in AIS plotting I'd noticed, they instantly put me through to a technical guy, who recognised it was a bug they'd already fixed, and shipped me out a software update free of charge. Completely out of warranty, but that wasn't even discussed. I thought service was top notch, all too rare these days!

In fairness, Standard Horizon are a Yaesu brand, and they certainly have a good name for radios.

Very innovative too: Linky

That product reminds me, I've seen some nice VHF/GPS and VHF/AIS combos recently. I wonder where the trends are headed.....

Now it's starting to come more into the price range, thanks all! Any second hand 750s out there?
