The Garmin works great. Exactly as advertised. It took a little getting used to the small screen having previously used a laptop. I bought the fuel flow sensor but never got it working on either the CaNet or NMEA networks. Other than that its a good unit.

Boy, that must be nice. The minute ours comes out we have to winterize it right away. You never know you might get a hard freeze overnight, and this is in October although today it's in the mid fifties, of course it won't last.
