The heart of a great integrated electronic system!

  • Summary: It was easier to install and integrate with the Sirius XM and radar receivers than I expected. The screen is big, bright and easy to read. I'm finding it VERY easy to use. The built-in charts include Lake Michigan and Lake Superior where I do my sailing. The ability to quickly find the phone numbers for marinas has been a huge convenience. I'm looking forward to integrating the big display at the nav desk with a slave 3205 at the helm.

  • Summary: Very happy after a season of use (Chartplotter/sonar) on my dive charter, especially for the money. My customers appreciate the music an safety afforded by the XM services.
  • Pros: Chart detail, ease of use, many funtional options (weather!), great screen, cheaper than competitors.
  • Cons: internal waypoint memory, loss of useful function

Garmin 4212 - I expected more.

  • Summary: Garmin has basicly taken over the market but their high end chart plotters do leave a lot to be desired. I expected a lot more for so much money. Many of the things a GPS should easily be able to do aren't available... There is only a limited amount of screen customizing available. Mine still won't work in the "auto route" mode - it always thinks it's in too shallow water even though it's showing 400' depth on the same screen.
