it will supposedly total correctly, tho I don't see how, the senders are only rated for 35 GPH.

35 Gph is sufficient for my 425's @ WOT, but barely.

dyno, did you get yours from Dave too?

Does the Navman 5500 come with the charts or do you have to buy them separately?

Forget Dave's Sent me an email they are "out of stock ... for 1 or 2 weeks"

He asked if he should cancel the order ... I asked him for a commitment on the 2 week max delivery date or cancel my order. He has not got back yet ... will update tomorrow.

Les at boatfix has 'em I'll bet for just a few dollars more. Most of the discount online places are within $20 or so of each other on either the internal or external antenna models. Been watching 'em for 6 mos.
