I've had pretty good success with mixing NMEA 0183 gear from different vendors. The standard is old enough that most of the bugs have been worked out. I don't remember if the 3206 has the NMEA 2000 ports, but I believe it doesn't, and not getting a chart plotter at this time without NMEA 2000 capability would be a shame. Garmin makes good gear and has excellent customer service.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
