Re: Help choosing a new MFD and Radar needed

If I was in the market today I would be giving strong consideration to the new Lowrance HDS7 Gen II Touch. Have not yet seen the GoFREE app but the unit is a very, very well thought out product.

I have installed a number of the e7D's, and they are decent units, but the Raymarine user interface is still overly complex and not very user intuitive.

Also keep in mind that Garmin will be answering the e7 and HDS Gen 2 devices this spring so you may want to wait. The new version of the 740 is supposed to be very sweet....
