I realize this subject has been discussed over and over... Which gear should I install?

I'm greener than green when it comes to electronics so I need help

My 08' Sea Pro 206 has a Raymarine A60 , GPS, transducer. Seems outdated and I'm unable to find any updates. Raymarine we site wasn't helpful.

In any case I'd like to get new gear. Id like to get a larger unit , so should I just mount it on the top of the console( plenty of room ), and leave the existing one in the console, or do I remove the old cut and install new unit in it's place.

Also is it possible that I could re use the existing wires and connectors if I were to stick with Raymarine , or will I need to replace everything ? What all would I need for a complete system ? $2500 budget.

Lastly, anyone skilled enough to help me install ? I'll take you out fishing on .

i installed my raymarine system, easy plug and play. can't speak for any of the other brands as i've never dealt with them. i think you'll find alot of opinions that will be biased sort of a ford vs. chevy thing.

Simrad and Garmin are the current top two in marine electronics.

I would contact Semperfifishing. PM him. Then give him a call.

He will steer you right. He's not all about money, more important is that you get what you need not what he wants to sell.

Great guy.

At that budget a Garmin 840xs and a B175 would be my suggestion.
