New Gps and Radar
« on: February 15, 2017, 07:30:14 PM »

I'm looking at replacing the outdated GPS on my current boat and throwing around the idea of adding radar.  Does anyone have any suggestions on what to get without breaking the bank and is this something I can install myself or should I have someone do it?

I just rigged a new boat last year and installed a Garmin 741xs unit with radar.  Have used it 1 year and love it.  I think the package with everything other than the transducer is $1800.  Good sonar and radar with decent mapping and I have it linked to the Yamaha outboard engine via NMEA 2000.
