Default Furuno Dealers Online?

I'm in the process of shopping for the best deal I can find on the Furuno 1850WD/NT GPS/Chartplotter (WAAS/GPS/DGPS) that uses CMapNT+.

Please send me links to sites that sell Furuno.
Thanks,
John

John,

http://www.bethel-marine.com

When I bought my LS6000 a year ago, they beat the price on every other vendor I could find. And I looked for about a month prior to buying.

Thanks.The best price I've found thus far is $1399.99 at BoatersWorld. BoatFix and WestMarine said they would match it. I'll check out the sites above tonight.

I would jump all over that at $1,399. It looks like somebody put all the new Furuno stuff into the boatersworld website for the wrong prices. The only reason I say that is because all of the "List" prices are several hundred less than what Furuno suggests it should be.

Boatfix has it for $1,498.

I wish I could match the $1,399 price for you. Maybe I will start buying my Furuno stuff from boatersworld . If I were you I would order from boatersworld faaast!

That price sure caught my eye but when I checked the boatersworld site I couldnt find it.

They list a 1850D for $1349 (but this does not have a sounder). The 1850 DFD is listed for $1749 (transom)/1849 (thru hull).

It is tough keeping track of all those letters!

I also heard this weekend that 1850WF are in real short supply..

The 1850WD (WAAS/GPS/DGPS)unit is the one I want. The "W" stands for WAAS and the "D" is for DGPS. I only want the GPS/Chartplotter not the one that includes the sounder which is notated by a "F"

They make an 1850W(WAAS/GPS)and the 1850D GPS/DGPS) as well the 1850WD which is the WAAS/GPS/DGPS.
They also have the option of CMapNT+ or Navionics chart reading. The unit that is CMapNT+ usually lists for $100.00 more.

The 1850WD/NT (CMapNT+) is the one I'm shopping for.

Here are links to each:

I think you will find that a 1850 WD (waas/differential) is a different machine than an 1850 D (differential only)with about a $100 price difference (1850WD being more expensive). Check page 2 of the link you provided and you will see the msrp price difference.

I see now that you are not looking for a sounder (F) so that is why the $1399 price is understandable. However do check the above links because some list cheaper prices for the 1850WD/NT.

Thanks for everyone's help. THT is a great resource and well worth the captains club fee. Here's a great summary of the model I'm getting.
