Lowrance Link-8 system (new in box) never installed.
Displays AIS targets and will drive a compatible chart plotter with AIS target data.
Unit has not been programed with any MMSI number and should be covered under warranty, never registered and you can send in the card.
No, this is not a "hot/stolen" item, I have the shipping papers from Lowrance to my home address with my name on them.
I need a wireless remote mic for my particular installation that this unit can't provide so will purchase the identical Simrad system (higher cost).
Item located in Palmetto, FL, will ship (additional cost), cash or Paypal.
