Default Navnet 3D - So is today the big day???

So the rumor has been they are supposed to start shipping today 4/28. Anyone have any update on this and exactly what "start shipping" means?

Is this shipping out to dealers? or does Furuno drop ship the orders placed by dealers directly to the customer?

I just spoke to Consumers and they told me that the 28th was their expected date. When they talked to Furuno last week they were left with the impression of No firm date but any day now they will start sening to dealers, as in later this week. ;?

I am still not getting worked up until May second week in May. At that point I hope they have firm info.

As for drop ship I know that Overtons will not do so. I tried and they wont do it. I live in Washington and a few hours aways is the Furuno HQ and where the shipment is coming to Port at. That would hae saved Consumers a lot of money in shipping a 4 ft open array across the country from North Carolina.

I am hauling the boat on May 1 and the New Transducer install along with the smart sensor will keep me busy on the electronics side of things for a bit along with the Auto Pilot. I figure I will work from the bottom up and by the time I get to the bridge the 3D will be here.

patiently waiting - have dual MFD12 system on order. my installer says still no definitive word from furuno. last thing i heard was that the BB systems would bereleased first, then the MFD's, then the radars, and then the remaining accoutrements.

here is a link to the install manual for the BB & MFD's that furuno recently posted on their website:

In order for Furuno to keep is NMEA product of the Year award it has to ship SOMETHING related to the new 3D product line. This does not mean the display is shipping. If Furuno did not ship a part of this system by April 28th they would loose the award. Were all waiting to see what gets delivered. Furuno is not telling it's dealers what is being shipped.

I called today and spoke with Larry in Tech support. Pretty good guy. He has stood in the wharehouse and has seen the massive pallets of boxes. The stuff is in Camas WA and will be shipping any day...maybe today. I asked if the MFD and Hub 101 were both in and he said everything was in and they were shipping everything together. Should be going out anytime. I am going to call Consumers in a couple days and check status with them.

Today was the first time anyone would confirm the items are here. Now just a matter of them being trucked to the appropriate dealers. I would assume that would happen this week.

I was told that my BB was shipped but not the Radar, should be here next week. I have already pre-wired and have displays mounted ready to all just be plugged in.

My understanding is that they were to ship yesterday, barring any unforeseen shipping issues. To me, that means they are built and are in the boxes...

Disappointing to me is that the Canadian charts are not ready quite yet either... It looks like I'll be getting the raster charts before the vector charts now. I've never used raster charts, anybody experienced with using raster charts?

I am dying to get my stuff. I am sure Jim at BOE is sweating, trying to get everything in so he can get it out. 12" Navnet 3D with 12KW radar and 4' array on the new Cape Horn. Should be a great set up.
