cnc33voodoo is on a distinguished road
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 information.my 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?
