I used it extensively for navigation coming up through Canada, where my digital charts were inadequate by "going to cursor" from headland to headland on the Inside Passage. I made the mistake of thinking the embedded charts in the unit would get me to where the chip started covering Alaska. Embed was great in the US, and then went right in the toilet when I hit Canada. I honestly don't want that much power in the air (your unit) and almost never even turn it on, which is the common case here.
I would have never thought that after hearing so much just the opposite...

Obscured visability is rare in Southcentral Alaska?

What's the reference to "power in the air"??????
