Default Garmin Chart Plotter Hunting......

I am looking at two models: Garmin Chart Plotter 182 (5.5 inch) and 232 (7.1 inch). So far the best prices I have seen are from Consumer Marine Electronics.

Garmin 182 (internal) $449
Garmin 232 (external) $869

What offers have the rest of you seen out there lately?

How important is the external antenna vs internal?

I prefer to pay for a bigger screen than to pay for color....am I wrong?

Thanks guys!

Hey Louis the West Marine in LB had 2 (Open boxes) Garmin 2010C for sale for $999. Not sure if they are still availbale. In addition not sure if the screen is to large for your needs. I run one in my Davis and love the heck out of it. **** of a deal. They are coming out with a 3010C. Same size screen but you are able to hook up all sorts of stuff the new model.

Louis,
How have you been? Have you looked at the 2006C? You can find them on ebay lately for about $950. I purchased mine from Westmarine for $2,000 at the end of last year. BoatUS was also closing them out at $999 a couple of weeks ago.

As far as the 182C vs. the 232 I would pick the 182C for two reasons. The 232 has a slower processor in it. The screen is also pretty hard to see during the day. Good luck.

Just got off the phone with Eric in electronics. price was 1999.00
I asked if they were closing out the 2010C he said yes price is 1999.00 Q:How much for the mono? A:We don't have any.

Couldn't tell you whether or not he had just put the crack pipe down,
So you may wanna call yourself. for all I know he's pricing the 3010C

Thanks Louis. Having them all linked toether is bitchen also. On my radar I have it set up so when I see a target I put my cursor on that target and it tells me lat/long, nm, and bearing of where that target is. My favorite piece is the autopilot.

Louis, there is another reason to go Garmin that I forgot to mention to you last night - Service. If you ever have to send it in for repair, Garmin downloads and saves all your WPs, and reloads them back after repair. They have WPs permanently saved in case you buy another unit down the road -just send it to them and they reload all your favorite saved spots.

Look at garmins 172c. I think it has all of the same stuff as the 182. Less than $600 on the net. About $80 for bluechart and $40 for a 16 mb chip.
I just bought a 276c and bluechart but wish now I had a little bigger screen. 276c- 3.8 diagonal screen, 172c- 4.5 diagonal screen.
