Re: Ordered the wrong Vesper AIS, Mfg allows no return :(

I've programmed the 850s. They get programmed by the vendor, but we can't reprogram them. You get several warnings to check your input before you finalize the number. I did NOT ever want to make a mistake with that. For reprogramming, the unit would have to go back to the manufacturer. Nobody that I know of takes them back once programmed.

Jeff at Vesper Marine offers one of the best customer support groups that I have found in decades in the marine business. You will get a response to your problem.

I have had both the 750 & 850 and found the 850 to be outstanding. I can't recommend it enough! Low power drain, great filtering options and a fantastic anchor watch system. Coming out of Panama I could filter out all the vessels that were not a concern.

My suggestion is to stay with the 850 and put it thru its paces you will NOT be disappointed.
