Default Garmin GPSMap 545 - Thoughts?

Does anyone use this model chartplotter? I chose it over the Raymarine RC 435 because you can overlay satellite imagery on the maps, and the resolution seems to be better. Any input on the 545 would be appreciated!

I had a 545s that I fixed mounted on my boat (Fixed mount vs Flush mount) until the flush mount kit arrived. The flush mount kit was on backorder until May. When it finally came it would not fit in my dash (They totally changed the way they flush mount - need more space than the unit itself) - so I bought a 3205. Anyhow, the little time that I had it installed it was a nice unit with great resolution. I would recommend one. BTW, I did not buy the chip for the satellite imagery - but it sounds pretty cool. Ted.
