Called Lowrance today. They said they would 'look at' (although the 'shouldn't') a LCX-19C Combo bought in the States which had a lighting problem, if it was shipped to them in Scotland.(Silva Service Centre - see the www.lowrance.com
I have been offered an LCX-19C ex ebay shipped to a US address by a reputalbe dealer for $1700 including transducer, GPS kit etc.
This compares to be best price of £1899 from jgtech.co.uk. In real money, the kit would cost £965 delivered to a friend in New York.
The ONLY issue is then the warranty.
Now, I am sure I could find someone in this forum who wanted a free flight to New York. At £470 for the flight, I would still be nearly £500 up!
So what is going on, guys?
Am I crazy to consider this solution?
Thx for thoughts on this.
