( link.. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NAVMAN-TRACKER...QQcmdZViewItem )
Add post and packing, + a c-map local chart from this seller...[url]http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/C-Map-NT-MAX-Marine-Plotter-LOCAL-Electronic-Charts_W0QQitemZ4644168321QQihZ002QQcategoryZ15263 QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
and its STILL cheaper than any british seller! Why do we still seem to be getting ripped off in this country?
The tracker was delivered in 6 days by ups. We also got a radio 7200, and a fishyfinder, all under 600 pund. Cant go wrong.

Lowrance 3500C with MauticPath chart, other manufacturers will struggle to beat this combination, although Lowrance have a nasty anti competitive directive that prevents US dealers from selling into Europe, market protection anyone?

That said you'll like the unit and its simple to use with clear mapping at a good price, especially if you go to different parts of the country.

Looks like it has the basic marine map but those screen shots are from additional optional software.

still haven't got it yet I think they are having problems fulfilling orders .

They quoted £150 for the extra chart software , but will see what it does first .

I think you might be right about them having problems, I ordered and paid for one two weeks ago and no sign yet. when I mailed them they said they had a back log.
