My installation was pretty straight forward, in spite of the installation guide's inability to decide which measurement system to use. Those with a passion for exactness may waste some time in pursuit of 2.5mm drill bits or get hung up on the fact that 18 mm is not quite 3/4 of an inch or whatever it was.

As usual, the installation manual, as written, would lead one to believe that no power cables should be anywhere near the display-even the power cables for the display itself. Is Don Casey the only one left on the planet that can explain something simple, in a simple fashion? And this drawing business, with either a check or an X next to it, in hopes of universal translation, is getting stretched pretty thin. On a $900 unit, one would think that the written instructions could be a little more expansive than they are. The operational controls and calibration of the unit itself seem pretty straight forward to this point.

Interestingly, the unit is manufactured in Hungary.

I will update on performance when the boat is wet.
