I also have the Garmin 182C. I looked and mostly made my decision on Practical Sailors review, not sure what issue. It has the things I want without being too cumbersome. I have mine mounted on a swing out bracket. I like being able to leave it hooked up and so did not want to mount it on my pedestal. Have fun looking. I have paper charts too but almost always use the chartplotter for the day to day cruising. The Blue Charts have been good for me. I also like that I can take it out of the boat if I want, download the street maps and use it for trips in the car, another added benefit.
