Standard Horizon Matrix AIS+ GX2150

Tomorrow is the last day of the Defender sale. They have what I believe to be a good deal on this.

I could use a new VHF.
All the reviews I could find sound pretty good.
I know it only receives AIS and the screen is small.
I don't need to broadcast AIS and I doubt I will even bother trying to connect it to my small chart plotter.
I don't go out very far and would only really need it if I got caught out int the fog or the occasional night sail.

Someone care to talk me out of it? I could live with the relic I have now and wait another year or buy something basic, solid yet inexpensive, or even just upgrade to a new floating hand held with GPS and DSC.

This thread will self destruct in 24 hrs.
