Ok, the time has come.
Furuno TZT2, Simrad or Garmin.
Bottom machine, chart plotter and radar in one display.
I do prefer to navigate to waypoints with a standalone Furuno GP33 to keep a dedicated screen for watching bottom.
West coast of Florida, don't think I need chirp for what we do.
Old school Furuno fan, but what about the others?
I like my stuff to "work" without constant updates
What says the brain trust?

I just went with Furuno TZTouch2 12" screens and Dff1-und sounder and couldn't be happier. I've seen Simrad Evo NS12 and and Garmin 7612XSV on my buddies boat but I prefer Furuno. It's all about personal preference thought.

It all comes down to personal preference. All of the major manufacturers are making good gear
