Summary: This is a first class chart plotter. The form and function is well thought out and the on board charts are the best. The auto side of the unit is big and clear. It functions well and has all the latest features with the exception of traffic. The only down side is no life time maps. Not sure how Garmin can charge top dollar for a GPS and not include them.
Summary: Perfect for someone who wants one unit for both car and boat. While a bit bulkier than some of the nuvi models it has the same features if you can live without bluetooth and mp3. Its chartplotting ability and endless on the water maps make it an excellent lower priced unit for on the water. Large battery puts other units to shame when away from a power source. I replaced my outdated gpsmap 188 with one of these and no regrets.
Summary: I have no problem seeing the display in the Hawaiian sun. The marine charts appear to be very accurate. The only drawback I found is the battery has a life of half of that stated so I bought a second battery for a full day fishing.
Summary: Awesome unit for G2 Vision Marine, I bought one last year and now am back to buy one for a friend. I wouldn't go fishing without this unit! AAA++ and great guys to deal with. thanks again from Canada!
