I found the same unit at Mall24-7.com for $579.00 anyone ever hear of them? Almost sounds too good to be true.

Becareful of some of those discount places......Boaters World has the 182C for 799.00 in stock on Midlothian Trpk. I have it, and it works great. Get the Chesapeake chart chip.
I like to pick stuff up and hold it before I buy.

Sweet. Buy a 182C I love mine. Get one with the internal antenna.

BUT.... install the new bracket and power supply cord in your vehicle.

Then you can use it both places for the price of one setup.

Love my 182c. I got it early and paid a little over a grand with the bluechart for my waters.
Gotta have the bluechart.

I've bought parts from www.boatfix.com before and would recommend them. The owner also moderates the engines forum on boatered.com and is very knowlegeable. His price is $692 for the external antenna 182c. Personally I will probably buy from him when I redo my dash. He's a little more than GPScity, but I know the business will be going to a stand-up guy in the marine industry rather than a electronics megastore, not that there's anything wrong with them... The 24-7 place would scare me and I can't see spending 799 when there's good alternatives out there where you don't have to pay sales tax. Just my .02.

Bill, $799.00 was the "megastore" I found a web advertiser at $580.00 But I don't know who they are. Thanks, I'll check Boatfix as well.
