I find that on the paper the garmins look good but then you always have to pay for more accesoies charts XM weather and in the end it doesn't really works. Why do we pay for charts that NOAA publish for free same for weather data.

The Garmin 42xx and 52xx have more features than any other MFD right out of the box. THey come pre-loaded with all US coastal charts. You don't need to buy anything extra if you want to use it as a gps/chartplotter. If you want radar, weather, engine sensor integration, AIS, etc. you need to buy stuff, but works just fine as a gps/chartplotter out of box.

Doesn't work as in gives inaccurate information or is buggy? I have never had any problems using my Garmin 4212.
