    This is an amazing piece of equipment. Operation is completely intuitive and very simple. I will use it in my small skiff with the provided lion battery and not have to have any wires to plug in. Completely portable with huge screen that can be read in the sunlight.

    So far so good, the only bad was not bright enought under the sun, I have the Fish finder 300C side by side and it was no problem under the sun
