Yeah, for sure. I'm not selling them, just spreading the love
There are a couple of things though. First off is build quality. I've had my mitts on both and there is a noticeable tactile difference - the Icom just feels sturdier. It also has a higher IP rating than either the Lowrance or the Standard Horizon. The "playback" feature also appeals to me - I often miss a call and would love to hear it again. So a few extra benefits for the few extra quid.
