Default furuno fcv 292???

i just put a 292 on my new 35' charter boat...i bought it back in december and it was the last one i could find on the east coast...i have the hood for it and have used it a half dozen times without a problem. if you shine sunlight directly on it, yes, it's hard to see. but where mine is mounted (in an enclosed wheelhouse with tinted windows), it's just not an issue. i compared a lot of crt to lcd units and talked to a lot of commercial fishermen that have used both, and they pretty much all agreed that they liked the 292 pictured better for target discrimination...

when someone tells you it's hard to see in direct sunlight, you've got to really think about how often that would be an issue...
