I would echo what Andre has suggested, the Northstar/Navman kit is very easy to use and when linked to the Mercury/Mariner engines give some very good info.
I have the Navman 8084 and as long as I remain with these engines, would not go anywhere else.
Nice colour scheme by the way
Regards

Hypro supply a wheel that is carbon fibre effect, but has a soft feel to it and they look great as well.

I would echo the thoughts about the Navman stuff - you get lots of fuel / distance info as well, so you know your range and how much fuel you need to get somewhere at your present throttle setting, easy to use too!

Have you got a website for the steering wheels?
Thanks

That is a fantastic wheel....
Delays were blamed on Shipping from the states, and when the Rib arrived 3 weeks ago there was a problem with the tubes, so they have to be replaced..
New date is September 19th..
