Somewhat disappointing

Robert S, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • Summary: I'm a big fan of Garmin products but this unit has been somewhat of a disappointment. The sonar in particular performed weakly - sometimes not reliably showing bottom 20 feet down if soft or weedy. The unit would also often reboot when experiencing shock, say hitting a big wave.

Craig, Amazon
8 April 2014
  • Summary: Like others I thought I was getting something else. I didn't understand that the detailed maps were extra, in our case the map card for the area we boat in, the great lakes, costs more than the chart plotter itself. I have since ordered one, what else can you do?
