Hi

I can’t say that’s a big surprise. The silicon on these gizmos made it past the “overkill” point at least 
a decade ago. There’s only so much you can do with a noisy signal ….. Yes, there are indeed feature
differences, ( like the Furuno pps ). The core of the device seems to have hit a limit a while ago.
