Furuno GP-33 GPS, hand’s on
At the risk of sounding mean, what excites me most about Furuno's new GP-33 GPS sensor and display is what it means regarding the coming RD-33 data display we discussed a while back.  That 4.3-inch 480x272 pixel LED-backlit screen -- ...
MFD comparisons #3, chart plotting in 3D part 1
If I can miss major ways that MFDs display currents and tides, lord only knows how much I might mess up a comparison of 3D charting.  There are so many aspects to 3D presentation, and virtually no bench mark as ...
MFD comparisons #2, mostly currents
I sort of knew that "shootout" was a poor word choice -- implying the certainty of corpses and so forth -- and I'm officially dropping it from the Panbo title vocabulary; it's too hard to be that certain!  A glaring ...
MFD shootout #1, tide predictions
I may regret that title eventually, though I've just been cruising with four premium MFDs for two weeks, often using them seriously for four or five hours a day.  But that doesn't mean I've learned every nuance of these complex ...

My first reaction to a press release about the new Si-Tex SP36 autopilot -- sure to be posted at the Si-Tex site soon -- was that its nifty-looking color control head above looks exactly like one ComNav has offered for ...
Garmin 7000 and AIS 600, some install details
Today I checked out some just-received Garmin gear prior to installation on Gizmo, and I noticed some nice little changes.  For instance, this AIS 600 has an automotive blade fuse instead of a glass cartridge and its relatively flimsy holder ...
Furuno NAVpilot 700 Series, w/ CANbus (N2K?)
Just as with the nifty-looking new RD- and GP-33 color 4.3-inch displays, Furuno Japan is ahead of FurunoUSA in announcing the new NAVpilot 700 ...
Furuno NAVpilot 700 Series, w/ CANbus
Just as with the nifty-looking new RD- and GP-33 color 4.3-inch displays, Furuno Japan is ahead of FurunoUSA in announcing the new NAVpilot 700 series.  (Sorry, Klamath, but if it's on the Web somewhere, some Panbot is apt to find ...
