I know ICOM have a great reputation but Raymarine make some seriously good kit - I don't think they would want to damage that reputation with shoddy goods!!!

I would say that the Icom rival for that particular Raymarine radio is the IC-M421, not the IC-M401.

well people i have a raymarine ray 54e and its caused me no troubles yet although i've only had it about a year. i too thought about the icom when i got mine but opted for the raymarine as it was a little cheaper. so far no complaints.

dave u can come have a look at mine if u want before u go spending!

you should and it lights up a cool red colour which would match your boat nicely all colour co-ordinated. i was talking to craig the other night on the radio ha ha i could have shouted to him but its much cooler over the radio!
