"Feared by ALL species of fish!" Hehe. That's an impressive claim but I can tell you "Hannibal" my goldfish watched this with me and he wasn't troubled in the least

Beautiful piece of kit though!

lol What the customer wants, the customer gets.

The E7 looks really interesting, as if Ray started with a blank sheet of paper. Very much competing for the Garmin 750 market.

Excellent, just a shame they have such awful customer service!

With regards to Raymarine's customer service, I beg to disagree. I visited Bangor Marina last summer as part of the 2010 Great British Rib Rally. My Raymarine VHF was malfunctioning and the local Raymarine Rep replaced the VHF under warranty, including taking the old set out and putting the new one into the console free of charge. He only had 6 hrs prior notice but was on the pontoon when we got into the marina. Very good service and I could continue to finish the rally. Well done Raymarine.

I took a Radar screen into their place in Portsmouth last week, it was working fine then switched it's self off.

I was told that a new repairs system was now in place, and that I had to leave it with them, and the repair would be either 49.50 plus vat and carriage, or 490 plus vat and carriage.

They would attempt the cheap repair, but if the components came to more than 12.00 then it would be the 490.00 charge.

I asked if they would contact me for my authorization to do the dearer repair, but was told that it wasn't possible, and I would be informed of the cost once it was fixed.

I was somewhat suprised to be told that they couldn't call prior to fixing it, as they had so many repairs to do, and that they were struggling to keep up with the invoicing!
