Default New Electronics

Hey guys looking at upgrading the electronics. I run a 29 proline and I was looking at Garmin, Raymarine and Furuno. Want an open array 4k 48in max. Will get chirp with Ray and Garmin and wait for Furuno. I picked out Raymarine e125, Garmin 5212 or Furuno TZ Touch 14. Staying under 10k so want 2 Rays or 2 Garmins but wont be able to fit space or budget 2 Furuno. I'm writing in just to see what company you guys like over the others and for what reasons. thx

If you are looking at a Furuno TZ 14' then you are over halfway to your budget right there.
Not much left over for the radar and sonar...no to mention install.

For the price of a TZ 14' one could get a complete Garmin CHIRP system..and still have money to spend.

Quality have never been a complaint with the majority of Furuno units....that is why most comercial boats use them.
They have excellent longevity and good customer support.
