Wow, going for the plunge with a brand spanking new boat

Don't think I could trust myself with a brand new boat

Don't the Garmin plotters come with the worldwide maps built into them?

I'm not going to actually use it! It's for looking at.

They do, but Garmin still don't have coverage of Irish inland waterways. The Raymarine seems to have a bunch of spiffy features that the Garmin doesn't too. The touchscreen part is the only bit I'm unsure on.

Anyone else experienced this? It would seem to be a bit of a deal breaker in an open boat. Ovey?

My Lowrance HDS touch seems to work wet. But that's drips from hands and suits. Not wet like UK wet.

I know its not the same league but I abandoned my plan to use my phone with the memory map app as a backup plotter when I tried to phone someone in the rain and it started dialling random numbers in my phone book after scrolling to random locations...

granted I would hope a plotter would have overcome that bearing in mind its intended usage...

I haven't had a problem with the touch screen, and it's definitely been wet! It's behaved perfectly so far. As I said earlier its a great bit of kit & even as a 6" display I can see both chart and sonar displays easily, but I may be inclined to go for a 7" or 9" display if I had the choice again.

He's means the largest you can afford! Price goes up exponentially with screen size.
