Ive got the one with the external aerial mounted to me skipole, there spose to be better, although ive never had a integrated one so i cant compare the to. Dont forget your charts to though think i paid £120 for me chart.

with the navman u can get a fuel sender as an extra to scare the living sxxt out of you!
