The installed system is perfect -- at least it was until a bird sat on the wind
instrument. "Only $400" is kind of a waste when the installed systems work just fine, the cutouts are all the right size, and nothing else is needed -- except a way to calibrate the WSO100. Adding a 150 to the bill pushes the cost of the new masthead instrument well over $1000 -- making the Garmin
look better and better.
It's sad, because the WSO100 is really much nicer -- but the "calibration cost" makes it just too much money
When will MFGR's realize that the users need/want to be able mix/match?
I am about to go to a N2K system on my boat. I won't be updating my GPS
at this time. I'd really like to go with a Raymarine
i70, but there is NO way to update it without buying
GPS! I'll probably go with a Garmin
GMI20, even though I'd rather go Raymarine, because I have access to a Garmin GPS
for firmware updates.
GRRR.... N2K came so close to interoperability!
