Ok lets see if I can cover all the points.

Yes you could by in the US and fit to your boat here.
You would be breaking the law if you did.

The unit is not approved in the UK/EU.
This is down to the CE or emmisions testing.
We are told it will not pass.

Ok the tough bit........
If you buy and fit to your boat and are caught you would be liable for a fine of approx 5000, they will take the unit and could take the baot also.

Warranty..... as a gobal company we would have to look at this on a case by case basis.

We here in the UK would love to be able to sell it.
Is is a great idea.
The sample we have here works very well.

Maybe the next one will have CE, fingers crossed.

Nice looking unit. I would try to get it from the States, the price there was $395 from http://www.marine-electronics-unlimi...on+CP180i.html and yet is is about 400. How ripped off are we in this country?

Just out of interest it shows as $909 ( http://www.marine-electronics-unlimi...on+CPV350.html ), which is 456 and then add import duty, VAT.

Even so it looks a nice unit and cheap if you compare it to the separate units.

Cheers

Hi Jon

I promise not to buy or fit the CPV350 then.

I can't remember all the codes on our kit - I'll post those later but I think I am coming to the conclusion that, I don't really understand but I think I need:-

1) a 'tom tom' type display GPS (Chartplotter?) - currently have a Furuno GPS;
2) a Digital VHF radio - currently have an Icom with DSC capabilities but don't really understand;
3) a depth sounder (not really a fish finder unless otherwise convinced).

Is there an affordable reliable solution?

Hi Mark

When I clicked on Add to Basket the price reduced by 51% to $394. Import Duty - don't swear ;o)

Ok Sarah,

If you can post the models (codes) later it might give me an idea of what you can or cant do with the existing kit.

Cheers

OK Jon

Furuno GP30 GPS which is on a bracket;
Icom IC-59Euro which is flush mounted;

Hope this is enough information.

Many thanks

Sarah
