Hi everyone,

I am finally able to turn my attention to electronics and am interested in advice about basic combos of depth sounder and gps/charting systems  I have a functional depth sounder though it needs to be better enclosed/set and at the boat show Garmin was proposing their in-hull chirp sounder that ties to their gps as an alternative.  

As I have heard of people obtaining good GPS units for hundreds of dollars I was a bit shocked by the 2-3 thousand dollar price tags of most of what was on display at the show. 

Thanks for any advice.

Perhaps electronics would be a good topic for a Sailor Talk?
