Are 'dash brackets' a fairly standard accesory for hand helds, or did you have to hunt around a bit?

thanks

I am just greedy I have a raytheon 520 and a vision 07 the vision is for me and the 520 is for the navigator (not that I don't trust him). I find that the vision is faster to update, cheaper and is easer to use. I am now thinking of getting the colour one has any one tried one of them yet ??

Seajay, all the handhelds have brackets and 12v power adapters. We used a garmin GPS 2 and a Magellan 310, both on dashmounts and 12v leads. The Garmins used to charge a lot more for their brackets ~ 25 vs ~18. On my new RIB i've got a Garmin Etrex, the mains lead was 15 and the bracket will be 19 when it eventually arrives. Whilst the screens are much smaller than the plotter types, they are OK to view when clipped onto the dashmount brackets. They will also run on the internal batteries if the 12v supply fails for any reason.

Hi folks

I was just browsing on www.boatlaunch.co.uk when I came across the following advice from a launch site near Aberdovey:

Channel downstream is difficult to find but bottom is sand. High sand banks. High risk of grounding. Use OS map for channel, not chart!

Okay, so now it's official!
