Well said sir, well said!
I actually did go ahead and make the connection on the off chance I ever need the Simrad
unit as a back up for AIS, but I have yet to actually enable to the overlay.
Your point regarding the Vesper unit is spot on, they really thought of everything with the 850 as it's dedicated to the task of collision
avoidance. I've been in a few situations already where the filtering made some tight situations so much more comfortable. Aside from that, the screen
is bright and clean, the interface is easy to understand, and the alarms and alerts are easy to customize ... it was also a snap to set up. I really think you'll be happy to have one on board!
Thanks again for the feedback ... now if you could do something about this cold rainy start to Summer, that'd be excellent! haha.
