Raymarine A50D at West Marine
« on: April 09, 2011, 10:23:57 PM »
If anyone is looking for a new GPS/Sonar.  West Marine has them on sale right now for 799.99 for either inland charts or US Coastal charts.  Plus there is a $150.00 rebate right now for the A50D.  Which brings the price down to 650.00. 

It is preloaded with Navionics charts and it has two NMEA connections that made setting up the GX2100 a snap.  Getting data back and forth from the SH to Raymarine is straightforward.  AIS data is also transferred to the computer through a USB/Serial adapter from Milltechmarine. 

Performance is good.  Sitting in the garage I was able to pickup a MMSI reading on the Columbia! 

I hope I can get out on the water tomorrow to do some demos for everyone. 

Cheers!
