We are having good results with JVC's smallest unit, the 1000. It retails around $12-1400 so would leave you some coin for a plotter. Having used a Garmin GPSMap76 with charts, I'd sure recommend going to a colour display, and slightly larger if you can.

The JVC claims to be a 16 mile radar, but we have it mounted on a relatively low (8') post on the transom so it's probably a bit limited in range, but it's worked well for us in the 4-6 mile ranges in heavy fog.
