Have you had a chance to install your 500F yet?

Just curious what you think of the unit, and what you might not like about the unit.

I have one rather big complaint, and it may lead to buying another unit. I was planning on putting on two seperate combo units and have started with just the one. But I am going to need to do something because:

there is no way to see a screen with the bearing and distance to a waypoint and view the FF at the same time.

Is there something I am missing or have you found the same to be true?

Sean,

To be honest, i have not installed it yet. I got very busy wioth a project at work and have not had time to do anything on the boat. I paln to install the unit the wekend of May 10th.

I'll let you know. I brought the unit down to NJ, so I can't even try what you're talking about on the work-bench.

Have you called/e-mailed JRC? Theya re pretty helpful.

That will be the next step. The maunal isn't extreamly helpful explaining some of the features. Just tells you how to punch the buttons.

Oh well. Overall I really like the unit. It just makes it a bit difficult to find a spot on the bottom when you can't see the bearing and distance and the bottom at the same time.
