    Don't really care when scott is having lunch..... but I am really really interested if the new charting shows all the marine zones (QLD) in the correct shaded colours (IE green zones in green Yellow Zones in Yellow Pink Zones in Pink etc) or not??

    Furuno have it with C-Map - i want to stay with garmin but my next purchase will be determined by this.

    Do I still have this right? These manufacturers are asking us $2000USD for 4inches of extra screen? It’s the same technology and computing strength and features in the 12inch model as the 16 inch model just the screen is 4 inches bigger?

    We are getting taken for a ride.

    Not even 4 inches, unless it's changed recently the screen size is diagonally, a 7 inch is usually only 6 inches wide. Just another way they can screw us.

    i unfortunately don’t think it’s just us. Those price differences for screen size are still very large in the US as well. When it comes to technology can you think of anything with a 4in bigger screen costing 2 grand?
