    What makes you think I look at it constantly?

    We used to have a plotter at the navstaton only but it's more convenient at the helm.

    Maybe handy up top but not the end of the world, remember those quaint old things some people used called passage plans?

    I have the previous incarnation of this Lowrance plotter:
    https://www.cactusnav.com/lowrance-h...n-p-22539.html
    Only £299 after the £70 cashback. It doesn't include the charts of course.

    These Lowrance units are designed to appeal to American so called sports fisherman but the chartplotter part of it works perfectly well for anything the cruising yachtsman would want to do - OK it doesn't tell you when to tack, but do you really need that? you don't have to fit the sonar transponder and can use it as a plain chartplotter or you can just try the transponder inside the hull, mine works down to about 10metres, but I don't need it.
    I have had no problems with mine that weren't cured by upgrading the software ( Y2K rollover week)
