I like my Icom 411. Think I paid about 130-140 but I forget the exact price.

Just found this on ebay

We get on well with the navman 7100 and the new garmin 100i, benefit is that you don't need a flush mount kit as an extra. Icom is excellent but the flush mount kit is extra if you need it

The flush mount kit for an ICOM is really easy to make though.

And the garmin is even better for flush mounting, The flush mount kit for the navman is similar to the Icom and can be a b***ard to fit in most consoles where there is restricted room but the Garmin drops in the hole and has a screw (or bolt if you prefer) in each corner fitted from the outside and then a cover clipped over them.

The Garmin looks very sleak, good price too!

Given the ease of fitting and the time I have spent with my arm in a console trying to fit mounting brackets to other brands. We like and a nice big screen on it to and give that it is Garmin, it should be ok but not been out for long
