Best Radar to Interface With Ubuntu Laptop and OCPN?

Trying to decide on a reasonably priced radar for a large sloop. Prefer radome type antenna assembly as it will be mounted on the forward side side of the mast. Must be easily interfaced with OCPN on a Ubuntu laptop. I will also have class B AIS. I would welcome any advice from anyone who has been there, done that.

Not much to choose from really. Either navico br24\3G\4G or som Garmins.
I use the Navico 4G. Not connected to any plotter, just computers with opencpn via Ethernet cable or wifi. Works very well. Hoping for the navico radar plugin for android AS well, but works fine with rdp to the computer at the chart table as a workaround

Okay thanks for that. I'll check out the specs and price on the Navico 4G then.
