Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    You said “Explorer C” in your article body, but it is actually the Expedition C (as shown on the top of the hardware in the picture). The link to this model is: http://www.lowrance.com/Outdoor/Products/iFINDERExpeditionC.asp
    Anyhow it does look like one heck of a deal for the price. How long before we see some kind of AIS integration with a marine handheld GPS? Is this possible without a totally obtrusive antenna?

    Duh! Thanks, Dave; I fixed it in the text. There is a PDA program for watching AIS targets, noted here on 1/11, but I doubt we’ll see handhelds with that function very soon.
