Default Looking for Budget Minded GPS and Radio

I am looking for a GPS unit and marine radio for my new-to-me boat. Trying to keep GPS under $600 and radio under $150. Any suggestions?

Standard horizon makes a combo GPS, FF, VHF all in one that i have always liked. The only problem i see with it is that if one function breaks you lose all three while its being serviced.
