i am also looking at the navman and standard horizon according to the guy at west marine navman makes the color gps for standard horizon its very confusing when looking at each one to see which one does more and is easier to use i'm most likely going with the navman becausr of the fuel flow meter

I am not sure what one is better. However, I like that the Navman has the fuel management option.....

I have a Standard Horizon CP150 on my 17' Montauk and a Navman 5600 on my Chris Craft 35' and I swap my C-Map chip between the two boats.
Both are good units. (Although the CP170 is more caparable to the Navman 5600.)
I like the Standard Horizon feature of 'position request' and 'position send' showing up on the CP when using Standard Horizon chartplotters. Unfortunately it will only display if you have both a Standard VHF DSC radio and a Standard CP.
However I really like the optional "Floscan feature" of the Navman and that's what swung me to pick the Navman for the Chris Craft.

To get back to the original question I'll be using mine mainly at night so I'm personally going with the grayscale Navman unit. I've seen some really be bothered by the color screens when in the dark. FWIW Navman seems to have a solid reputation so far and I love the idea of the built-in fuel computer.

BTW - Dave @ http://www.brokenlegdave.com has the 5100e for $344 and the fuel X-ducder for $79, same setup runs at least $370 and $85 at other places. Plus, the more you buy from Dave, the better price break you get !
