I have recently bought a Garmin 182c and will mount it on the bracket, due to not enough space to flush mount. I have had a Garmin in the past and found it to be easy to operate.

We install many units for our customers the popular brands are Ray Marine and Garmin

He have had rave reviews and zero problems with the Garmin

182 C and the new 172 C both have good color and definition/contrast work very well and are easy to use.

The NavMan is a fantastic deal on a quality color plotter.

I did a lot of research, hands down the winner.

has a 3" triangular base tilt and swivel mounting something like a RAM mount. Needs very little surface area. Will of course flush mount also...quite easily.

I got the 5500X, C-Map W+ card, and twin engine fuel flow kit for $650 after the $175 rebate on the plotter.


GPS City had the best price on all and the lowest shipping.

check out NavMan's website for lots of detailed info.

Garmin is the way to go....maybe like he said Garmin 182C
What I like about Garmin is the advantage of setting the screen up for Speed, Max Speed, Mileage, Time to Destanation and etc...although NavMan makes a nice looking unit it does not have as many choices
Here is a pic of the old Raymarine that came with the boat, I installed a Garmin 182C which smaller
