Looking for a good radar GPS system
I'm looking to replace an old GPS with a new GPS/radar system in an Allied Luders 33. We plan to do some offshore sailing and expect to be in some areas with heavy fishing traffic and possible fog up in Maine. We are thinking about buying a new Garmin system from West Marine. It looks great but is expensive. The dome costs $1000 and the GPS that it can connect to is $1600. Do you think I should pony up for a new one or are there good used ones on the market that are more affordable but also effective. I'm also getting the Standard Horizon AIS VHF as a back up.
