I thought I was sold on the Element.LOL.
FYI, Simrad, Raymarine, and Garmin have the same pixels on there MFD. Raymarine and garmin have the quad processor 4 speed on the units. There are adjustments on all screens as far as brightness goes.
All manufacturers say you don't need a GPS antenna, but all depends on what's above your units. You may very well need a GPS antenna. If you have a hardtop, with a life preserver holder. I would just get it, or get it at a later date. Spending $150. On an antenna is just a small amount when having a boat.
