Is there some way to make the depth values larger in the chart ?
Now the value font is so small, that I have to use powerfull glasses and consentrate to read the depth. It is not nice while sailing narrow lanes.

Btw: is there any way to send feedback to Lowrance ?
After just two days of use I have some suggestions:
1. The NMEA-0183 cable should be default in the package
2. The panel screws should be included
3. The advanced-mode settings should be part of the default
4. The boot-up time should be shorter. In 40sec a boat can travell rather long.
5. The cover should be included

Those parts, which are not included, are easy to get, if you happend to live next to Lowrance factory. Here on the other side of Atlantic it is not so easy. Dealers do not have them in their shelves. It takes weeks and costs honey to get them from USA here Finland.

Forget fishers / sailors difference in advertising. Sailors have instruments for the wind in their panel. Leaving NMEA-0183 out and using NMEA-2000 does not make chartplotter for sailors, as in B&G. Dealers recommend B&G for sailors, I would not. It is a nuisance to buy a NMEA-0183 => 2000 convertter for all your old equipement: autopilot, AIS, etc.
Sailors need a hard device with simple and easy to read system with large fonts of depth and unambiguos chart with easy to read naval marks.
