Default Ray A78 vs Garmin 741xs

Are there any advantages of having one over the other?Im looking for a pretty economical mfd that i can bundle with a dome radar.Does Raymarine or Garmin have a dome that compares to the 4g(simrad,lowrance)?And is viewing radar on a 7" screen adequate?Played around with the a78 at WM and it seems like a pretty solid unit.They didnt have the 741 out.

I picked the a98 over the 741xs because it was less money (after rebate), bigger screen and I wanted Navionics vs. G2 charts. Haven't received it yet, but played with it at the boat show and was pretty impressed.

BTW, i presume you mean a78 not a87
