And with a new 4G radar just installed, we're looking forward to another trouble free cruising season.
I think a big factor is the supplier/installer.
+1 having a good installer that keeps the software updated is a huge plus. Since I'm my own installer I picked Garmin for the on-line software upgrades. Almost every bug I have found with Garmin has been promptly attended to and cleared with software upgrades.

Had issues here with Garmin. Not the equipment, but what Garmin here said it could do when I specially asked them, which it could not. It got to the point they treated me as if I was lying about their pre purchase advice which I had relied on to buy.
So I emailed(or wrote, unsure which), to Garmin USA,cc Garmin Sydney. Instant local response, lots of help for a work around. The Garmin equipment works well 4 years on.
