Thursday and Fort Lauderdale BS is underway.

A lot of rumors about new releases at the Boat Show from Garmin.  They have announced their new 8600XSV series with what they are calling as G3 charting which merges Navionics with Garmin’s G2 charts.  The only thing I have seen on it to this date is AutoRouting is now standard and the purchase of a Vision Card is no longer necessary for this feature.  It has been over a year since Garmin purchased Navionics and everyone was wondering when two of the premier charting companies would get together, and with the 8600XSV series will finally have it.  It should be an interesting time  at the Boat Show over the next couple of days.  I will try to keep you undated on new or improved product announcements.  Stay safe.
