I''m thinking of purchasing and installing an integrated Radar/GPS/Plotter.
First, is it even a good idea to buy a system that is integrated, with all the components of the same vintage and by the same company, or does this make each component too specific to easily replace if one should go bad? Or is it better, somehow, to have dissimilar units that sort of stand on there own?
Second, what attributes would a good system have?
Third, what all must I purchase as part of this system? For example, in order to install radar, you need the antenna, radome, cable, electrical cable(?), mount, and anything else?
Finally, how much would a good system cost?
