boatguy, November 30, 2012 I bought this unit as an option for boat charters where the
onboard electronics are limited. I have used it so far on
only one trip to Florida and the Bahamas.
Pros - used it for an auto GPS in Fort Lauderdale so the
"double duty" of sea or land was appreciated.
Used it as a mini chartplotter sailing Florida and the
Bahamas so provided a neat little navigation when a true
boat system was not available.
Cons - really not the same as a dedicated chartplotter -
small screen, marginal daylight visibility.
Overall a good compromise option. Reasonable auto Nav and
the ability to have a chartplotter (albeit with some
limitations) when a chartplotter is not available.
A good product that is compact and easy to use that provides
dual options in a compact package and extremely better than
the alternate of no electronic Nav options on sea or land
The mounts leave much to be desired - look at the Ram mount
Philo, September 1, 2012 This little unit works as designed for when we head out on
the boat. There is a learning curve to to be able to get
through the menus without the manual but it comes with
time. On our motorcycle it is also good, however, there is
one major drawback that has forced us to buy a secondary
unit for use. In automotive mode, you cannot save any track
data. This is an important feature if you do geocaching,
rallys, or want to document your where you have been. If
you just going out on a planned trip then it its fine. If
you plan any type of long distance exploring, you'll
probably need another unit that plots your track.
William, August 6, 2012 So far so good. Need to use more to get a decent assessment
of the product.
DrDan, February 4, 2012 I initially bought this unit to serve as a chartplotter for
my sailboat. I have the unit mounted on a 4" RAM arm that
is bolted to the top of the binnacle. This allows me to
rotate the unit very easily to port or starboard so that I
can see the unit when holding the wheel from the windward
side of the boat. The unit is relatively bright, very
sturdy, and has withstood quite a bit of rain and salt
water splashing. I wired the mount into my sailboat's
instrument system (Nexus NX2 system) via the NMEA network
and it works flawlessly, even when repeatedly disconnected
More recently, I bought a second mount to use it in auto-
mode on my motorcyle. At first I thought it would be too
big and heavy but it turns out that a large screen is great
on the bike, as it is easy to view in a quick glance
(lengthy GPS-viewing is not advisable on a motorcycle!)
Overall, very pleased that I didn't have to buy another
(expensive) waterproof GPS to use on my motorcyle.
