GPS / Plotter
Agree that Simrad is expensive and in my mind C**P.
I have a good Garmin H/H that has never let me down, but my main ones are the Humminbird NS25, takes 2 C-Maps, has a sounder,plotter, and all the nav gubbins on it, and compared to most is slightly cheaper.
I have mine mounted on the console- not flush mounted, and the original now has over 1600 hours turned on and no problems.
The only thing i wished it did was store your route- but it does not!
Waterproof as anything, although the screen mist up a bit now and again, but once in the sun (if we ever get any this year) it clears up -
Worth a thought ??
