MS, does the vulcan have dock to dock or 'easy routing'? Having bit of a fight right now with simrad and navionics. Once our exorbitant subscription ran out for our charts, they somehow stopped the 'advanced features'so no more 'dock to dock'. Its a bit like having an internet connection run out so they disable your modem! As the ocean bed doesn't move that much except in Kaikoura, I figured why pay $160 a year for chart upgrades? Now I know why! So don't register for chart upgrades and dock to dock will stay working? Nope, they thought of that one, its only available when you allow the sdhc card to be upgraded then it must set off some kind of software bomb that says "hey buddy, you're 12 months is up, give us more money".
We bought our NSS EVO2 off All Marine when Bob still owned the business so now annoying new owner Richard over it because the blurb and what was said over the counter made no mention of the fact that they pull the carpet out from under you once the money stops.
Consumer Guantees Act I think would consider that deceptive? Certainly missleading!
At the time reading up on the mfd before handing over our scrapped together hard earned cash, all we read lead us to believe the dock to dock feature was Simrads, not some bloody chart company that would switch it off.
What do others think?
