Doesn't seem all that cheap; Here it is for $164 US (80 pounds; this side of the pond, though): http://www.gpscity.com/etrexventhc

Try Mathew Redhouse;
Trades as "Sounderparts" on tinternet

He's cheap and a genuine delaer in Lowrance, got mine nearly 18 months ago from him Lowrance H2O iFinder and NauticPath chart for about 380 I think. It was the best deal around at the time and was fairly close to the US prices. But without the hassle of possible import tax malarkey and warranty issues (2 year on Lowrance)

Not sure what might be on offer at Earls Court Boat Show.

If you can wait until 11 Jan, go to London Excel Boat Show where there's sure to be deals.
