Do you have or want any other instruments? Do you want to be able to display the speed and depth information anywhere else?
If you get the Moor system, the only thing that can display or use the speed information is the Moor speed display. I don't see any information on NMEA networking on the Moor site, so I assume there is none.
With the Garmin system (or any NMEA 2000 system) it's easy to send and display the data on other displays. You can display the Speed Through Water (STW) AND the Speed Over Ground (SOG - from a GPS)), and then you'll know the speed of the current too.
Lastly, what Garmin transducer can provide STW without a through hull? I can't find one on the Garmin site anywhere.
Personally, I would go NMEA 2000. It's not new technology anymore. You can buy transducers from Airmar, Maretron, Garmin, etc.
