    This consolidation could result in better products at lower prices or the same products at higher prices. We'll have to see which way BPS goes with it, since it will be a virtual monopoly.

    Wishful Thinking?

    Bow mounted GPS/sonar displays are installed on the deck, which is very inconvenient. I've often thought it would be really nice if it were mounted higher.
