I would go with the internal antenna. No seperate antenna and wire to mount and screw with. I have my 182 mounted to the left of the dash and accuracy is fine.

The internal antenna is fine in most conditions. It's only in severe weather that you will start noticing a difference...(but then again, that may be when you need it most).

Boatfix and Brokenlegdave are highly recommended. I have done business with both many times, very reliable.

Re Garmin: I would tend towards Standard Horizon. Better value, better service, standard Cmap NT charts.

If you ever have a problem, they usually send you a new one.

If you always had Garmin, then you probably have a sizeable investment in their charts: Stay with Garmin.

I've also ordered stuff from Boatfix several times before with great results. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.
