Default Furuno GP-7000F

I am looking at this unit to replace my 1650DF. I looking at the 7000F for it's larger screen and the fact that I can use my existing transducer and GPS antenna. I am also limited with the mounting because of where my existing electronics are mounted. I don't want to get into a major project rebuilding the helm to accomodate more electronics. Here is my existing set up...

You also can run the C-Map Max charts...something the 1650/1850 can't.

And the question is?
Is it worth it to replace my existing unit with the GP 7000F?

I like my GP7000... from what I hear, the re-draw time is much faster than your existing unit.

It took me a long time to get used to mine but now I like it. A Garmin would have been a lot easier to learn and use. Of course the Garmin sounder ain't in the same league as the Furuno.
