How many of you will be on board and do you typically perform navigation tasks at the nav station? If you sail short handed and no one works at the nav station, the repeater isn't worth it.

Also, can you name the manufacturer? I can't think of any modern plotters that DON'T support repeaters. I think that they all support NMEA 0183 in and out and many now support NMEA 2000 as well. So, maybe you can buy the cheaper system now and add a repeater later?
