Depth, speed and ?

Hi all my knowledgable and opinionated virtual sailing friends.

We have an Irwin Citation 34. We have:
  • Furuno Radar 1623
  • Garmin 440 chart plotter
  • Standard Horizon Matrix GX1280S
  • Raytheon autohelm
There is an old knot meter (does not work) and an old depth meter that works 95% of the time.

I know there are enough opinions to keep me reading until Christmas, but, I am looking for (I think) new depth, log and maybe temp. I am leaning toward a ST60 Tridata, but, as you can see, I am not married to any one manufacturer. I am, however, frugal and would prefer to not spend any more than I have to. The difference of $100 is a big difference to a retired guy.

Thanks in advance.

Irwin Citation 34
