Icom IC-M421 is no more
Just as I had settled on a black IC-M421 as the selected VHF for the new boat they appear to have stopped making them in black... bah.
I don't want a white 421 (the other option - would look pooey on a white console) and I don't really want a 411 (doesn't display lat long position etc) and I don't want a 505/603 or above (too expensive).
What is the nearest equivalent to the IC-M421 from other manufacturers? It needs to be black, flush-mountable into the panel, it needs to have a display similar to the dot-matrix on the 421 which can show GPS position etc. Preferably with the microphone cord coming out the right hand side of the radio panel (Lowrance appears to take the cord out the left hand side but that won't suit my proposed instrument layout very well).
A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
