Re: NEXUS Instruments - Experience with?

Thanks guys!

I am convinced that Nexus is great but I ended up with a boat that has Simrad instruments

Salonas come with Nexus instruments but they can mount Raymarine if you want. For what I have heard on this thread I would stick up with Nexus.

I ended up buying an used boat that come with Simrad.

Now about Simrad.... well the 2002 raymarine plotter I had was faster then the 2007 Simrad I have now and I liked more the Raymarine instruments, with the exception of the autopilot that is really good.

I have a Furuno 2007 radar that is really crap compared with the 2002 raymarine I had. It has not even MARPA and without that a radar worth a lot less regarding its use.

From Nexus I have the binoculars they represent (Eterna). I had already on the other boat the previous model when they were "Silva". They are great with an incredible low light capability.

Regards

Paulo
