I do admit that they seem to make things obsolete a little before they should, but all in all not bad stuff for the average guy.


Garmin's "stuff" is excellent. The problem is the "Engineered Obsolescence". We have a 2006c at our Nav table and a 3205c at our Helm station and they are both excellent and both declared "obsolete" by Garmin so we're screwed if we need a repair or replacement charts later than 2008!!!
