Promise.
The review I read in pbo aug 2004 has the sets fitted with them - the Raymarine "smart heading sensor e12102".

It also says on Raymarine's website that it must be used to function properly.

If not essential then but does it give much better performance???

Just been reading a good review of MARPA sets - the Raymarine was easily the winner - but then you have to add a fluxgate compass as well as a radome - another 600 - eek!!!
Hi there , best thing you will have done next to buying a Rib We have used the C120 on test both in the UK and Europe and now over here in the USA we use the C120 and its features in full whilst fishing off Key west.
Good luck love to hear how you get on with the 120s smaller brother and its features

It's nice to know it's a British company as well - massive place in Portsmouth.

Will certainly keep everyone updated WHEN my boat is finally ready - just hope we will have a bit of summer left - i know I intend using it in the winter as well but SOME sunshine would be nice!!!

Good on you The only other item I could compare the C120 in features and ease of use was the Furuno GD180 which I had on my Lochin however it would not be suitable for a Rib and would be akin to having a microwave on the dash.The feature I find so easy to use and so important to passage planning is the input of routes and data ( dont forget the paper back up though ) aswell as it split screen and overlay capabilities.

Is this the REKRAP that I used to do a lot of Ribbing with back in the good old days of the early 90's?

Apart from the price????

Mainly it is the 100mbit data bus called SeaTalk hs - supposed to be "plug and play"(where have I heard that one before)???

It means you can have displays all over the place if you wish - handy on a Sunseeker.

The one thing I would REALLY like for the RIB would be the video input - it would be cool to have an infrared camera attached to the A frame for night use - stealth mode here we go!!!!
