If the prices are right – that for $2000 you get the VV7 kit – I would call that a bargain if you compare it with the old VesselView that retailed for $1600 – but had 1/10 of the features of the new VesselView.
But according to Mercury in Europe – shipping is now delayed until 3rd quarter 2013. But we can always hope for sooner.
