Navman 5500i - Any good?

Currently looking at a Navman 5500i colour Chart plotter. Does anyone have them? Are they any good? When I had a GarminGPSMAP the main feature I used was the 'TrakBack' ... does the Navman have this? Or something similar?

navman products look great but they often have problems with misting etc. The only Navman instrument I have is a 3100 fuel computer - and that is playing up - my Raymarine stuff is fine!!!

My fuel computer is getting worse - the LCD digits are corrupting - they clear after a while when they warm up but them some spray on the boat and they start playing up again.
