Handy tool with limitations

As plotters go it is easy to use and reliable but when it comes to flexibility and service advice I'll be looking elsewhere.

After purchase one finds that Navionics, probably one of the worlds top charts is no longer supported in Garmin devices and the NMEA0183 interface is very narrow in its ability to link to marine radio. The response given to my queries to their "support" was stunted and unhelpful.

If you're just looking for a fish finder this will probably suit you but if you want more sophistication maybe look elsewhere
Straight-forward menus
Incompatible with Navionics maps
Tablet & smart phone interface only available on Apple
