Re: Help choosing a new MFD and Radar needed

Graham,

The new Simrad IS40 (and the B&G, which looks like the same device) is an MFD with autopilot control, if you buy an extra little remote control.

I'm thinking of replacing my Garmin GMI 10 with the Simrad IS40, for a few reasons : bigger display, better calibration of speed and wind devices, and adjustable damping (GMI 10 appears to have none, makes it useless for wind info)
