Thanks for the link. What are the XL3 charts like, do they scroll completely around their entire area ?

Where is the cutoff to the North in Scotland and East on South coast for the Western England/Wales chart (24G) ?

Are the data displays good on the Lowrance, at speed ?
Any comments on the 3300, I am interested in the 330 combined unit but worry the display is small, you seem to like it ?

Sorry for all the questions but I am sure someone will search for 3300 info one day and find this mine of information ! Cheers

When scrolling across the map using the cursor and zooming in to areas with high levels of detail there is sometimes a pause of a few seconds for the unit to load the detail Ė I have not seen a delay when in use tracking position across a map.

Covered by 3 XL charts which you load using the menu.- each chart does cover a large area so you wouldnít have to load them very often.

Finish East of Littlehampton near Worthing just North of Girvan in Scotland.

Canít really comment on data displays at speed the only thing I have to compare to is my old Garmin 45 and itís on a different planet to that. All the readings seem to update pretty well instantaneously. - Marknj may be able to help with this and other comparative stuff.

I have the 3300 - Display isnít enormous but itís a good quality TFT which is easy to read even in direct sunlight Ė itís the right size for the top of my console. I expect a combined unit would be a little small Ė but Iím speculating here.

I really like it in terms of value for money compared to similar screen sized versions from other manufactures. I got mine for £579 and that includes the XL3 charts. And as yet it does exactly what it says on the tin.

I have asked this before but didn't seem to get a response - do the charts look the same on a 182C as they do on a PC? The 182C is limited to 16 colours - obviously the PC isn't!!!
I don't have the colour version so can't say

Don't know if its been mentioned on this thread but you can download Lowrance product emulators here:

http://www.lowrance.com/Software/PCS...-330C_demo.asp

These give you a good idea if you can live with the screen size.

Cheers
