Default RE: furuno navpilot 511

I will just say, as long as the RFB unit works, it will do a great job. But I would be willing to buy you a beer, that you will be bitching, because the RFB will go bad. Teleflex has far I have been able to find out, has not made any big changes in the RFB unit and that is who makes it for Furuno.
I am sure the 511 is a great pilot. but you still have RFB, that is the problem.

As the old saying goes,"pay me now, or pay me later". No one wants to admit it but they have not colved the RFB unit life for out boards. If you have an inboard ,no problem.
Go with the TR1 and you won't have to worry about it, and you can save the install time.
Good luck and boat safe
