    Thanks !

    Is there a significant difference between the information/features/functionality of the NAV V and VI ?

    Both have similar features and can be programmed and used the same. There are some minor differences in some functionalities.
    The main difference is in their performance and the screen brightness, the Nav VI being faster and having a brighter screen, easier to use in bright sunlight.

    Bill, the other primary difference between the V and the VI is that the VI has twice the internal memory. For most this isn't an issue, but it can become one.

    I switched to the VI for the improved visibility as my near-vision is poor without glasses.
