I have a Raymarine on mine - great especially at night with the 3D chart and radar overlay.

We have the Simrad Broadband radar on our RIB and would not be without it, if caught out.

Due to the threat of fog all day Monday, we had it on all day and were able to detect some small bouys(lobster pot marks) before we aquired them visually. Brilliant kit

I have Raymarine as well (E70). The radar overlap is especially useful as is MARPA (requires additional compass unit though).
