Re: Furuno GPS 32 Comments?

We have a GP-31 (predecessor to the 32) that came with our boat and by my estimation is at least 10-15 years old. It still works flawlessly and is an absolutely rock solid piece of equipment as far as I'm concerned. It is probably one of the few marine electronic devices that has been in production essentialy unaltered for so long. I love its extremely low power consumption and it's simple anchor alarm functionality. I was able to expand the capabilities of ours by connecting its NMEA output to a multiplexer that can feed a laptop or iPad. If it ever gives up, it will definitely be replaced with a 32.
