Hi Bogib,

I have the 7100. No major problems. Radio works well and wiring to GPS was well supported by Plastimo.

Only faults are. My friend knocked off the squelch knob when refuelling. It sticks out a bit proud. And the On/Off knob tends to get clogged up with crystalized salt water however much you wash it down after getting splashed.

The set on the whole is fine for the price. I've had it 18 months and it doesn't do anything strange or switch it self off or anything.

Regards Nick R.

I sent this another ribnet member. It might be of use.

Frequently Asked Question
FAQ1232232 for Product: 'VHF' Category: '7100'
Title: GPS Wiring for VHF 7100
Question/Symptom:
My instruction manual shows the GPS/DSC wiring differently than the labels on the actual wires.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Answer/Solution:
A small amount of VHF 7100 installation manuals have a misprint in the wiring instructions. The manual lists GPS+ Green and GPS- Yellow. This is incorrect. It should read GPS+ Yellow and GPS- Green.




If you suspect that there is an error, use the actual labels on the VHF wiring harness. GPS + Yellow. GPS - Green.
As always, should you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us.

After a year ours has lost its led backlighting, salt also crystalizes the on/off button, and volume is affected by water clogging the speaker plate on the radio, however seems okay apart from that

All Iwould say is if the radio is not needed urgently wait till January.

New models tend to appear at the boat show also it is the best time to get a great price.

Hope that helps a tad.

Regards

Mine is now a year old. The spring that holds the distress button cover has fallen off so that flaps about a little bit. The nobs get really stiff on mine if I havn't ued it for a little while although they free up when its in use.

I tried to wire mine up the GPS but it didn't work; I'm assuming I'm sufering with the wiring issue described above.

Other than that I like it; it looks nice and comes with a flushmounting kit in the box (do Icom's come with these?)

Agree with Jon .

Worth waiting for the Boat Show if you are visiting Bogib.

Someone may also wish to do you a deal if you explain the other purpose of your trip (raising awareness of the MS society/ Iceland)

Whole crew will be attending the London boat show as well as having look at the boat.
The company I work for represents Navman and the boat will be fitted with 6600 plotter, 7200 radio. I have been using 6600 a lot but we haven´t imported their radios so far and wanted to have comments from people using them.

Thank all of you for your useful comments

Bogi
