Default Furuno-to-English Dictionary Needed

I'm interested in the NavNet xx2 but am finding the Furuno website a tough go. This is preliminary so I'd rather get some neutral advice here than go to a dealer at this stage.

Apparently the base system comes with an open array antenna, 48-mile radar and a plotter. With the exception of a possible side-scan sonar (down the road a bit), I'd like to stick with Furuno. I'm assuming that with the plotter comes GPS so I'm looking for a sounder add-on and possibly an autopilot. I say possibly because Furuno's stand-alone autopilots are considerably more than are Simrad or Raymarine. Does anyone know if their autopilots integrate with the NavNet and, if they do, are they more affordable (than their stand-alones) due to the hardware redundancy?
