Garmin gps 750s

Hi

Does anyone have a 750s on a rib? They are down to 800 at Seamark Nunn and I'm very tempted but wanted to check if they are suitable first. Look perfect from a read through but I'd rather have some expert views

Cheers

PH

They have always been awesome value, but now they are down to 650 quid they are hard to resist.

One downside is lack of video input.

I have one that I use in the car with street mapping, and change the card to take it on the boat. I've been using it for almost a year and very pleased with it. Main criticism is not having two card slots - having to change the card from boat to car each use is a pain
