I know of number of people (me included) who have Lowrance plotters, and are happy with them. Note there are two main lines, the HDS units, that support NMEA 2000 and the Elite series, that is cheaper, smaller and supports only NMEA 0183.
If you are interested in a screen larger than 5" and care about networking, then one of the HDS units would be a good choice. They support XM weather, AIS, RADAR, etc.
Regardless of which brand you get, if you really do care about networking, make sure you buy a unit that supports NMEA 2000. This way, installing new sensors, and device, is as simple as connecting a cable, instead of soldering or crimping a number of teeny tiny wires.
