It is an older radar, been out of production for about 8-9 years now. In its day it was good unit, and if it works, there is no burning need to replace it. If its broken, going to be hard to get it fixed unless you have a shop nearby that does component level repairs, as Raymarine doesn't have any parts for the old Raytheon/JRC sets. If it is on a boat you are buying, it adds no value to the boat other than potentially having a passable radar on it. If someone is trying to sell it to you, unless you have a hole in your dash that a 40/41xx fits into, I don't see it being worth an investment unless you desperately need a radar but have the budget for a handheld gps.
