I had a Garmin 2526 xHD2 and thought it was at best mediocre at finding birds and then only when tuned manually. Now I have the new 200W high power solid state Furuno DRS25A-NXT with a 6 foot array....

Oh sorry I misunderstood your comment. I think an honest answer to your point is that it is very hard to really know just yet how safe it is on the island. It is only recently that the number of...

Actually nowadays Furuno equipment is not more expensive than others. A TZT 3 16 costs about $1,000 less than a Garmin 8616 at the discount online retailers. That's because Garmin has been great...

That's not an easy question to answer. The summer season in some ways appears to be building earlier than normal. That's probably because kids were not in school and many people were working remotely...

You don’t really need the DI-FFAMP with a B275LH. The built in sounder will drive that. If you do deep dropping and need good performance below 1200- 1500 feet, maybe you should think about a...
