Default Need electronics package - please advise

After a 5 year break in boating (due to divorce) I am back! I am looking at an older 24 foot CC with very old and tired electronics (that were not even good for their day). I want to upgrade the electronics.

I need an all-in-one package, FF, chart plotter and radar. Does anyone offer a complete package anymore? I bought my Furuno package this way years ago - all came in one large box. Ideally I would like the ability to get the FF and chart plotter now and add the radar later, but not opposed to getting all now. Looking for color. I do not care about touch screen or not. 10 inch or larger screen is preferable. I really do not need tons of features. My biggest request is ease of use and it be intuitive to use. In addition, which transom mount transducer would be recommended.

I do not have a budget, per say, but was hoping to stay under 4500.00 if posssible

Thank you.

Any one place better than another to buy from? I would prefer to buy from a THT supporter.

There are a lot of good vendors on here. I personally bought from Semperfifishing (Gil) and can't say enough nice things about him and the products purchased.

Look at the Ion or Onix from Humminbird. Great units that can be expanded later. They have side scan, touch or not touch screens. Customize the screens you want to see, hook them up to your engines, very versatile.
