Hi Seaquest1,
That's awful! I'd report it to the police and if it was from a company, trading standards. Also 28G is not all of the uk, it's all of the east coast, and the north/west coast of scotland (down to about Stranraer). Although not quite as good as the Navionics, Lowrance do a Nauticpath chart which covers all of europe and it's about 100 cheaper than the 28G, BlueV in Port Edgar do them. Personally I use navionics, but I've seen Nauticpath and it looks pretty good, if I ever need west / south England I'll prob pick one up.

Cheers,
Fraser

Don't mess around. If you have legal cover with your house insurance got them on the job. I had a similar incident a couple of years ago when I purchased an item that was mis represented.....ended up bankrupting him
