which brings us back being screwed
Grumpy

The guy in canada had plotter and not VHF troubles.

The price for the GX1500 has not been confirmed as yet and stock will not be available till Jan.
Having said that a SRP of 189 is about right.
The street price will, of course, be less.

Hope that helps

It was not the plotter i was inquiring about Jon but which vhf had been
recomended by the CanadenTransport inspectors [Ocean eco from Cowichan bay thred

As for the GX1500 M.S.S.com must be jumping the gun

In the absence of any pics of the GX1500 is the screen biger or smaller than the VM3500E

Screen on all three VHF is the same.
Same as that on the VM3500.

I am using the gx 3500 quantum. Here is a link to SH website. Before this I used a quest which was also really good but not approved by MOT. I had the colour model of the cp 180.
