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?
