Re: Which new radar/plotter?

I just asked this question of the marine electronics guys at our yard. He likes SimRad, however, says the Furuno is the bullet proof stuff. He also liked that Furuno had a device that would convert wind, speed, etc info from outdated components into modern standard format and has a new touch screen he likes. Says its expensive, however.

Raymarine is the most integrated. He's not generally a big fan, but acknowledged that the modern era has been out for a while and most bugs have been worked out with software upgrades.

Didn't mention Garmin at all, although, its possible he just doesn't sell it.

I think, in the end, I will probably update with Raymarine, when the time comes. I prefer everything from the same manufacturer, to eliminate the finger pointing. When I go for it, I plan to do the full monte, Sat Wx, AIS, etc. May still be a year or two off. Need other surprises to stop.

Furuno. No where near as intuitive as the rest, but still bullet-proof beyond comparison.

I'd say Simrad has better technology out right now w/their 3g and 4g broadband radars. But Raymarine has the most advanced "screen sharing" capabilities with ipad and wifi. Garmin is leading on price.

Which new radar/plotter?

Finally replacing Furuno 24 with state of the art overlay system radar/plotter/AIS. Narrowing the choice down to Raymarine e125. What say all of you?
