I just bought a Garmin 545s.
The transducer isn't set yet (fall project) But for my first GPS, It Rocks. Nice 5" screen, great visibility in the bright sun, Auto darkens, in the evening.
Probably considered out dated by some of the top line stuff, but it was a good fit at 950 bones.

The Garmins have good screens and the UI is excellent.

You don't even need to read the manual- you can hop in a boat with one having never before seen it and navigate anywhere with ease.

Here is a great electronics link for those wishing to learn more.

There are links to several plotter radar shootouts if you dig as well as great info on the latest marine goodies.
