Default New Electronics on the Cheap - Simrad Install

Well, I am finally finished with the install of the new gear. Simrad 12" NSE, 8"NSE, BSM-2. M265LH, and 4G radar. It took me longer than I wanted to accumulate all of the pieces I needed but in time, I found them all. Most of the pieces I found here, EBay, and various other means at a much cheaper than retail cost. All still under warranty too. I wish I could have fit 2 12" screens but it just wasn't meant to be with some other stuff I want to add later. Including the money I received for the sale of my old Northstar equipment, I was able to get it all for 50% of retail.

Now if I can get a weather window, I will take some screenshots of the CHIRP in action.

Cheers!

on ebay and under warranty? you might want to double check on that. even some seller's that say "warranty" are not waranteed by the manufacturer, but instead by the seller who will be mysteriously unavailable when you try to file a claim. Been there, done that... just my .02

nice setup, your electronics cost more than my whole boat.

Yes. All serial numbers were verified with simrad prior to purchase. But thanks for the pessimism.

I'm wanting to do the same thing, except with fewer pieces of gear, just a couple of MFDs and the 4G. How did you sell your Northstar gear, on eBay also? Any tips you can pass along?
