    Just installed one on my boat with the 1kW through hull ducer and love it. It is far superior to the Garmin GPSMap it replaces (I still use the map function). I have a RAM overhead mount for the 585/620 I didn't use if anybody needs one, PM me.

    I originally thought I'd use the B744 from the Garmin but by the time I got around to working the pigtail mods, I had a birthday coming up so used it as an excuse to get the 1kW to use the full output from the Furuno. The B260 is much bigger than the B744 BTW, and makes the B744 look puny.

    I'm looking at the off-market Airmar transponder for the 585. Anybody use them.
