I just read a review on radar units, I believe in Practical Sailor - unforunately I can't find that month laying around (hint to the Admiral to find it and put it in my binder).
Anyway - the single unit won hands down over the combined MFD display ones, both in readability of the radar and price.
Besides, if you use a MFD for everything and it (the MFD) goes down you've got nothing. Would you plan for a single point of failure anywhere other than electronics, heck no.
