Simrad chartplotters/instruments

Anybody familiar with Simrad instruments and chartplotters? I've been looking for a chartplotter that can also display output from a depth finder and wind instrument and display the wind graphically like an analog wind direction indicator (similarly to the raymarine ST 60 wind display). The only instruments/chartplotter I've found that does this is from Simrad. Any input on their products is greatly appreciated.

Simrad Chartplotter

I have had a plotter/sounder, i believe a CS33 for more than three years. It has been a good performer with occasional fogging of the screen the only problem. However, the installer cut the GPS antenna cable to avoid cutting a larger hole in the deck, causing intermittent signal loss. I replaced the cable with the end fitting intact and have had no further problems.

I have no info on their chartplotters but i do have their autopilot and it outperforms my Raymarine one by a nice margin. I have confidence in their engineering.
