Re: What kinda mounted GPS unit should I buy?
Biggest issue with ipad/iphone/... is display readability in bright sunlight for detail. I have 4 forms of nav.. paper, iphone/pad, garmin 9007, Garmin SV93 in the cockpit. I have used the B&G and I have to agree that there are many sailor friendly features that are not present on the Garmin. It has a pretty high learning curve, where the Garmin is very easy to learn. You almost say "am I missing something?"
Think about futures, some will not support radar, some will not support sonar. Not sure if that is a factor.
Don't buy, until you try.
