Can not comment on the land down under however here in Canada
the distributor for raymarine
is Ester Line CMC Electronics
, they refuse to do any warranty work on any Raymarine Product that is not purchased in Canada
from their distrubtion system,
Many people, including the author, feel Raymarine should have the warranty honored worldwide, I have personally spoken to raymarine about this issue however all I got was a run around.
It may be different now that FLIR is the parent, as an example I emailed them about a broken plastic case on my AIS250, all I wanted to do was buy a new cover however they said they would mail me a new case no charge, Good service
so perhaps the future is looking better.
