I installed a Raymarine radar, found the documentation, instructions and hardware all very easy to work with. I''d rate it as one of the easiest improvement tasks among major systems work.
I''ll disagree with Richard a bit, as I don''t see the splicing of a small gauge multi-conductor cable to be especially difficult so long as you have the right tools and materials. Moreover, Raymarine sells special junction boxes and splicing kits to aid you in this process (altho'' I did not need to use one).
One caution: No matter where you plan to mount it, think about sending one or more of the components off for service at some later time and provide for removal and reinstallation, burning no bridges behind you.
