I am purchasing
362 equipped with a Garmin
and a GMR 18 Radome, new 2007. On my Pearson
34 I had a Garmin
172c that crapped out pretty reliably every 3 years until they no longer supported it.
What is the experience with the 3010C? This is a pretty different animal and, for one, it seems to have lasted 8 years OK at this point.
In thinking ahead to a likely return to Nova Scotia
(from Maine) in 2017, a couple concerns:
One, sure would be a drag to have this crap out in NS.
Two, a few folks still have a Canadian chart card available but they are generally not available. So I am thinking to grab it now before all gone, but if replacement of the unit is coming up, then maybe I should spend the $150.
Garmin website says they no longer support.
