i actually was leaning towards the garmin unit due to the fact that i know from experience they last a long time however when i turned it on i noticed poor colouring on the screen.then i checked online reviews and found that was a common complaint,and that it was hard to determine land from shallow waters.also a few reviews mentioned the sreen is constantly pausing to load the next old garmin unit does that and its pretty anoying.
the only standard horizon item ive ever used was a marine radio that came on a 27 footer my freind has and it took a crap in the bed.
kind of makes me question their quality.
is there a superior unit to both in this pricerange?
