Default Which and why...raymarine c127 or garmin 4212

Ok...I finally have figured out I want a 12" display rather than trying to fit two smaller units in the same space.

I've narrowed it down to the raymarine or garmin units listed above.

I will need it to interact with a fishfinder so keep that in mind. I have a cat and the side view function isn't important, I bottom fish to 500 ft. Troll for salmon at 200 feet and run to the canyon for tuna at 2,000 feet.

I need radar. I like radar with overlay just to make sure I'm interpreting data correctly.

I've used raymarine in the past (c80 and c90w). So I'm familiar but I've heard good things about garmin.

Touch screen isn't important as rough sea conditions make it a little difficult to use.

Thanks for any input. And the final kicker....I don't understand the difference between the c125 and c127. And the garmin 4212 vs the 6212. So if anyone can fill me in on that it would be great as well.
