I just bought a new RayMarine Hybrid touch e97 AND e127 which will be networked together using the Quantum Radar and also the AirMar B744V transducer. To me, if I was upgrading it was going to be to the latest and greatest.
I agree, anytime you upgrade anything electronic I feel like you that one should go with the latest and greatest. That is why I will probably go with the larger 9 Garmin. I will need to replace the ancient depthsounder but that will probably wait until next year. A new marine VHF is my first purchase once the boat launches for the season. I will have to go on the Boat US website to get my MMSI number so I can program it into the radio first time I turn it on. I don't see a radar on this boat. There is no radar arch so I would have to go with some sort of pole mount. But, you never know I might decide radar is a need down the road. I did have it on my last boat and it is a nice tool to have in the toolbox.
I prefer separate units over combo ones so this GPS will be used as a GPS only.
