Anyone using a Simrad GO 5 XSE?

Just wondering if anyone on this forum is using a Simrad GO5 or 7 XSE. It looks like it has a lot to offer and would fit in nicely at the nav station.

A few questions:

  1. Does it have an anchor alarm. I cannot find a reference to it in the owners manual. I have sent an email to Simrad, but no response yet.
  2. Is the instrument page able to be customized or is it primarily set up for a power boat.
Thanks for any help

Simrad and B&G are the same company. the B&G vulcan is the same as the Go series but have the sailboat oriented addons.

Thanks. Took a look and the B&G Vulcan 5 is exactly what I was looking for.
