Not sure what there is to bash about it. The way you describe your outings I would recommend having it. It's great for getting the big picture on what weather systems are doing. It also shows lightning strikes which can be REALLY helpful if you're trying to dodge weather.

In addition, it give weather synopsis that go beyond what you'll get on your VHF. Wouldn't it be nice to wake up in the morning, 80 miles offshore, and just take a peak to make sure nothing in the forecast changed?
