7" Touchscreen GPS/plotter/sonar with in hull transducer?

I'm thinking of updating my GPS Chartplotter in the next few weeks/months but I need to get out on the water a bit more first in order to justify it.

The boat is currently fitted with an old Raymarine RC435i (which came with the boat), and I'd like to replace it with a 7" (or thereabouts) touchscreen plotter with sonar/fish finder (mainly for depth and wreck finding), with an in-hull transducer for around the 700-900 mark. I've been looking at the Raymarine a77 or a Garmin equivalent, but found these a little higher in price. Is it a justified price? Has anybody got any experience with these? Or recommendations to other similar products?

Thanks.

Ok, will see what I can find on the Raymarine a77 versus Garmin threads then.

Thanks for the help.

Yeah, I just did that too. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I should have done that first!
