The NY National Boat Show is upon us, which provides DIRECT dealers a break on pricing which we pass on to the consumer. There also show rebates that are announced at the beginning of the show, which I will post here as soon as I get them.
We represent them all, and will be accepting orders and providing quotes (still waiting on 2013 pricing from some companies) on Jan 3rd. Please PM me whatever it is you're looking for, and this also goes for Cummins, Yanmar, and Volvo Penta engines as well as Fischer Panda, Onan, Westerbeke, and other generators, as well as Glendinning, Edson, Teleflex, and other manufacturers. We also supply liferafts, sat phones, EPIRBs, PLBs, you name it.

Participating Electronics Brands Include:
Furuno
Raymarine
Simrad
Lowrance
B&G
KVH
FLIR
Standard Horizon
Icom
Nobeltec
KEP
Maretron
Garmin*

I could go on forever, you get the idea.

*Garmin does NOT provide any additional show discounts aside from their displays, so sounder modules, radars, etc. do NOT qualify. Just another reason to hate that toy factory.

So put together some wish lists, and I'll spend time speaking to everyone to make sure what you have in mind will do the trick based on your particular mission, as every boat is different, some fish offshore, some inshore, and just because something is priced high doesn't mean it's the perfect solution. Right now I am on vacation as Precision is closed for the holiday week, so I will be unavailable at the office, but any preliminary questions or requests, just drop me a PM and I'll communicate via my personal cell phone. Looking forward to the new year. Merry Christmas everyone, and thanks for all the support in 2012!

Hi Chris,

I've seen previous posts regarding your opinion on Garmin before. I am an inshore recreational boater that is space-challenged. I have an ancient chart-map that I would like to replace. I've been impressed with what I have seen and read about the Garmin 740s.

What would be your recommendation as to the competitor for this seemingly powerful little unit for around the same price?

The 740s looks and performs like a champ, for short money. Buy it and do not look back. JMO

The 740S is the best bang for the buck unit out there, and while I feel the e7 and even the NSS7 are superior when considering the user interface and other system components like radar and sounder options, but if you just need a 7'' chartplotter/sounder, you can't beat the value. My main beef with Garmin is with their larger 8'' and above networked systems, as the competition just provides a higher level of quality when it comes to product build and support, UI, radar, sounder, and cartography options. The 740, 546, 541, etc built by Garmin are the best valued basic systems on the market right now, although Raymarine is getting closer with their new a-series. Can't go wrong with a 740S for what you're trying to do, but if Raymarine has a hefty show promo for the e7, I would take a close look at that unit as well.

PS: The price in the Amazon link, as a heads up, is almost 200 over our selling price. I can't 'publish' our price due to MAP policies and restrictions, but would be happy to reply with a quote if you drop me a PM.

Not sure if you got my pm. Looking for an ACR Cat II EPIRB, with built in GPS.
