    I have been running a NSE8 for several years now, it has been accurate and reliable, and handles my autopilot as well.
    The MFG offers software upgrades from time to time, so I haven't felt the need to buy a new unit to keep up as new tech becomes available.
    My local West Marine store has a bunch of them on the bargain table, don't know if that is so at all the stores, but it does offer you a great excuse to fly to Honolulu!
