Default Need advice on 5" to 7" Chartplotter

I am looking at a new chart-plotter for my upper helm. It will be in direct sunlight, so I need a screen that work well in that environment. I am leaning toward a Lowrance 5" HDS Gen2 with built-in maps but the reviews are very mixed and customer support gets a bad review.

Are there comparable Garmin, Standard Horizon or Raymarine products in the same price range? One negative is having to spend $200 for a map cartridge. I would like to keep this purchase under $800

Thanks for any advice,
