I have a Lowrance LMS337C chartplotter / fishfinder. I picked that unit because IMHO Lowrance has the best bang for the buck. For $500 the unit has a high resolution (480 X 480) color screen, fishfinder, and detailed charts for the entire US.
My boat came with an older set of Datamarine wind, speed, and depth instruments (the wind meter didn't work so I had it rebuilt and now they all work fine).
I installed a Standard horizon GX1500S VHF. It is DSC capable, and I have integrated it with my chartplotter. I installed a remote mic so I can use the VHF from the helm.
I have a few chart books aboard, as well as the typical plotting gear (divider, hand bearing compass, etc.). I also have a handheld Garmin Extrex Legend chartplotter that I bought for my first boat. It's a good backup. I also have two handheld VHF units (westmarine brands).
Lastly, if I am going on a trip I bring my laptop with Seaclear software and USB GPS.
For tracking I just use excell or a work file.
