Got a new 182C - arrived yesterday! The 172C still isn't in the country yet and it has a slightly smaller screen so we went for the older proven model.

I have just ordered a 182c last week. The Garmin book at work did say 5" sunshine viewable TFT screen with faster re-draw rate for higher speed chart movements. They are waiting for stock to come in so maybe I will get a better one
