Well, it's a hell of an improvement over the CR 42 I had previously, that thing redrew at a positively glacial pace... My CP 32 below is extremely slow to redraw, as well... By most people's standards today, both of those units are hopelessly obsolete, and badly in need of replacement - but a dinosaur like me will elect to spend my next couple of boat bucks on a new Code 0, instead...

But, trust me, I've run plenty of boats with plotters that redraw in an instant, that's not the sole reason why my preference is for North-Up... :-)
