There I was thinking that I had the only non fogging 68 !!
Well today ( a nice warm dry day ) The screen finally fogged on our 13 month old simrad 68. In fairness though ....No Beeping ....Yet !
Does anyone from Simrad read these posts?
Looks like I'll be buying an Icom at the weekend. No point in having DSC when you can't read the screen !!

All with the exception of one of the 68s have been scrapped after on average a year due to screen fogging.
For some reason the 68 on Ally Cat has refused to fog !! (Must have been a Monday morning radio!!)
We have tried contacting Simrad ...No Joy No Reply. We logged our disapointment at London, Paris, Dublin and Southampton shows....No follow up.
While I am on it we had the same probs with a JRC LCD Radar fitted to a training RIB !!!! JRC not interested either !!!
So we now choose Garmin and ICOM and are happy to reccomend the same to our many students and clients both leisure and professional !!
