I have a Garmin 182C chartplotter. I love it. It does everything I need.

I use the lowrance m68c which is a combo depth charter and GPS, comes loaded with all USA maps however the maps are don't have the fine details as a pure gps plotter. No chips required. It shows land, water, bouys, town names. I bought it due to it's size and provides all the ability I need for to find my way around. Depends on how much detail you need on your maps, I don't cruise the coast line so wasn't concerned about the details. I'm very happy with the unit.

NavMan 5500. Color, 5" diag.

They've extended the $175 rebate.
The 5500 can be had for $515 online, then minus the rebate.
More features than Garmin, C-Map cartography, and optional fuel flow monitoring for $150 (twins).

I had my rebate in less than 3 weeks

276c, small, portable and it has all the functions you'll need.
No wiring necessary.
