Review as promised
Well after a number of trips now using this (to three different areas) for our use this chart format is simply excellent. Lowrance have a stunner. The tidal information is there contrary to a statement I made elsewhere, the info is posted as icons that can be cursored to, once there, click waypoint not Enter (slightly confusing) and then the attached screens appear. For divers the benefits are clear, it tells you when the slack window will be, I havent poked around the notes section too much so dont have any info on this nor on the anchorage info.
For such a cheap charting format its good value for money, the only criticism would be that at very high zoom the chart redraw isnt as fast as the boat can be steered in a small area, so when manouvring over a wreck the chart pivots about a bit until your course settles in a line again. Balance this with the fact that you've got not the world on a stick but most of Europe which isnt bad at a level of detail close to admiralty charts.
Verdict: For a dive club going to different sites around the country there's nothing to touch it. Nice one Lowrance
New boat is here, very happy!
