I installed the Nautic Laugic NL4-PP (PerfectPass) into my 2004 Gravity XLV. Here is the install guide for anyone interested http://ddixonphotography.com/nl4-pp%20install.pdf.

I was looking to upgrade the PerfectPass that came with my Gravity XLV to Star Gazer. Since I had a single line display the upgrade cost was a lot. Then I found the Nautic Laugic option which saved me enough money compared to the Star Gazer for a new prop.

I must say I'm very happy with the product. No more calibrating the PerfectPass and dealing with the issues of a paddle wheel. It keeps a great consistent speed and smooth operation. I also hooked my speedometer into the NL4 so I have a GPS speedometer now as well.

Nautic Laugic is great to work with, very responsive to my emails. If your looking to get GPS accuracy with out a big hit to the pocketbook take a look at Nautic Laugic.

amazing.

$295 for the faster unit seems like a bargain compared to the pp gps unit since I am also someone that needs the upgraded 2-line display..

hmmmm....

Looks like a great product and reasonably priced compared to StarGazer.

Will the gps puck pick up the signal with it mounted under the dash? On my PP Stargazer, I put a piece of velcro on top of the puck, and stuck it under the dash and it seems to work well there. I haven't had any issues so far. I tried this because I didn't want to drill anything or fish wire and ideally not have the puck visible to clutter up the dash.

I don't know, any satellite receiver should have a clear view of the sky to have a good lock on the satellites. It might work but I think the speed and continued lock on satellites would be compromised.
