Radomes are fine but you will get better definition with an open array as the antenna is longer which makes for a norrower beam resulting in a sharper image and target discrimination. Really depends on personal prefference, type of boating you do and the waters you navigate in.
You can interphase a lot of systems into the network to be displayed on the screen if want such as engine info, etc. The more items/windows you have open at the same time, the smaller the information gets and is harder to read, so the bigger the screen the better, or multiple screens dedicated to certain functions also helps. Sky’s the limit here! Personally I’m not a fan of wifi for this type of thing.

I can tell you for a fact NOAA can be VERY wrong. With a powerful radar, you can become the weather man and take evasive action.
Lake can get real nasty in severe storm.
You'll also pick up jets landing at Mitchell. Since marine radars are two dimensional, that "boat" coming at you at 150+ knots can be a real fooler the first time you experience it.
