I also have the Mederian Marine--and use it only for emergency navigation. The Magellan FX 324 is a discontinued model and is at least one generation back (I had looked at it several years ago and eventually pruchased several different brands)--You can get much better GPS units which use better charts currently. Look at Lowrance. These are NMEA 2000 plus NMEA 0183, so it will interface now and in the future, It uses Lowrance Nauticpath charts, which are basically the NOAA charts and are quite good, or you can use the Navionics charts. In the long run it will pay to have a better, brighter screen, faster fresh time and ability to update charts.

Magellan's direction is toward the new hand held units, plus automobile navigation, and away from the marine market at this time.
