delite is on a distinguished road
We just added a Lowrance Elite 5 for about $550 that included all the charts from Mexico to Alaska, including BC. If this had been a Garmin product we would have spent that on the maps alone. Seems to me the real expense is maps at least in Canada. The Elite 5 does not allow other inputs such as Radar but does allow it to be connected to a DSC VHF. This is more than sufficient for our needs. I wish it had battery info like our previous GPS did but not that big of a deal.
