So tough to choose. Help me please....

Please help me decide on an electronic package for my bristol 35.5. I am relatively new to sailing and the old corinthian gear is going caput. Mast assembly is falling off and I would like to upgrade the entire system. Every salesman I talk to has opinions on best gear. In talking to install guys they list problems with reliability and company support with mergers and takeovers. My plan is to install a sail package, rudder indicator, radio and a helm GPS/plotter this year. Future plans include radar, xm weather and a new auto pilot in 1-3 years.So far I am leaning towards:
B & G Triton or Simrad IS 20 sail package
Simrad IS 20 rudder indicator
Lowrance HDS gen2 7 or 8 at the helm
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Sailing the Chesapeake bay.
