Standard Horizon chartplotters

The works boat presently has a Simrad CR40 and I'd like to augment it with a Standard Horizon Chartploter which kinda fits well with the Standard Radio I'm buying. Question is did I see some comments on this forum that the chertplotters weren't too waterproof/reliable has anybody had any problems with them at all.

If you do get one whack some gaffir tape around it not pretty but effective.
Has not failed me yet and very simple to use with good graphics .

My 300 has had bucket loads chucked over it on 3hr Scilly trips and is holding up well enough.

Mine gets a good wash with a jetwash after every use. Not close up but it gets a good flush. Still works fine.
