Default WIll Furuno go to NMEA 2000 & Platinum chips soon?

On the verge of buying a Raymarine E80 but just can't decide, tempted by good deal from boat show specials. Would prefer Furuno, but just seems they are behind the times technology wise. Anyone heard of Furuno going to NMEA 2000 in the future and being able to use the Platinum chips?

I had a few older Raytheon products and just wasn't real pleased with them, the 18 year old Furuno stuff on boat now is still working well, but want to modernize.

Don't really need until March so thought might wait and see if anything new comes out. Anyone heard anything? They came out with the digital finders so thought maybe by spring.

Thanks Glen. Figure might as well wait as boat will be pulled in a month or so for the winter.
