Summary: Nice, fast, chartplotter. I rigged a wooden mounting platform on the grab bar that's around the steering pedestal on my sailboat. Works great. The screen is bright and easy to read. And it's very nice to set a warning depth for the chart, which makes low water soundings show in red.
Summary: Arrived promptly. It was easy to adapt it to my existing holder. Found satellites quickly and the internal antenna seems to be sufficient Waypoints, routes and tracks are fairly intuitive The Instructions are poorly organized. I miss the bearing arrow pointer to destinations.
Don't listen to comments ABOUT "NO MAPS"!!! They are without merit.

Summary: Okay, so I didn't purchase this unit off Amazon, although, when i see such ridiculous comments about this unit and the closely related line of GPSMAP units, it's clear that people are just pissed off with life in general and have a need to comment negatively on everything that doesn't go their way! These units come with a typical MAP,...just like an auto GPS. And just like an auto GPS, you have to continually update it. Now,..
Summary: The gps works perfectly. Just connected it to my vhf radio for the dsc location transmittion and it works great. Very happy with purchase. Shipping was prompt and recieved the product in a timely mannor.
Summary: Like the Garmin products. Good price performer. Unfortunately, this new product would not power on. When it did it would not stay on. Garmin technical support was excellent! Customer service shipping complete replacement. Another reason I like Garmin.
Summary: I just receintly got to use this unit and I was quite pleased with it.It's easy to use and very accurate. The only thing I dont like about it is the numbers are difficult to see but I knew that before I bought it. I actually have it mounted about 6 ft away from the helm so if you have it mounted closer not a problem. Its also pretty good in the direct sunlight. I'm really likeing it.
Summary: I would like to start by saying this is the first review of a product that I have written, but i am so disappointed that I feel like other consumers need to be aware. I am an amazon prime member and order from amazon all the time, but I will never again order from this seller- ANTONLINE- and I caution you to be sure that this is the exact product you want before you do. I ordered this GPS for a gift for my husband for our new boat.
