Standard Horizon CPN700i Network Chartplotter Review

With the high resolution touchscreen you can clearly view maps and charts, and you will also appreciate how easy it is to use.

It comes with an internal GPS antenna for accurate positioning, along with preloaded cartography so you can start plotting your course.

It is easy to connect to all of your devices with this chartplotter from Standard Horizon.

Not only does it come with a durable construction, it is also backed by a three year limited warranty.

The only complaint concerning this chartplotter is the fact that it does not come with a transducer, and while this would be a nice bonus it does not affect its overall stellar performance.
