not looked at the furuno system yet but i suspect they will be pretty pricey, i am trying to build and fit the boat out on a budget so to speak so looking at probably lower end nav hear like the garmin 178c etc. But will take a look at them and see if they do my price range

cheers

Ive got the 178C Flush mounted to my console

I think its a great unit - does everything you could ever want - and doesnt take up to much real estate.

If you were refering to the 178c and garmin blue charts then I found here and here to be the cheapest.

If you ment the Furuno stuff then no idea...

Hey Roy


thanks for the links, we may have found a place slightly cheaper but will need to double check and make sure is apples for apples comparison but pricing looks very very similar. I had a good look at the garmins at the boat show and they are very very nice, also looked at standard horizon and the 3500c damn cant think of the name

which model did you go for, single trans, double, etc

I went for external antena (needed becuase its flush mounted) and dual frequency transom mounting transducer (although i have it bonded to the hull in the bilge)

remember to take into account that jgtech prices are inclusive of VAT and next day delivery.

Lowrance 3500C is the one your thinking of. Damn good piece of Kit. Our previos Boat was Lowrance equipped and proved V reliable , specced Blue "C" with lowrance 3500c and 52i sonar/GPS. been used wll over 150 hrs this year in all weathers and still going. Visit Lowrance.com and download emulators for the gear your intrested in. You can then sit and play with the thing on your PC knew our well before it was fitted. Also Lowrance provide operating software update downloads,which are simplicity itself to upload to the unit.

Regards and happy hunting

Brian
