Brand New/ Old Navico Equipment

Question is this, I have some brand new in the box Navico brand equipment, tiller pilot with remote, depth sounder and knot meter. I have never had this boat in the water and hopefully are coming to the end of what will be a 4 year re-commissioning. The boat has a Standard Horizon depth and knot meter currently installed. I don't know if they are working. Considering Navico is no longer in business should I go to the trouble of installing or put somthing in like Raymarine electronics that are still supported?

Aloha cburger,
I have the same problem. I bought the electronics 15 years ago thinking I'd install them within a year. The thru hulls have been installed but I've never hooked up the electrics. I'm going to do it anyway in a few months and see how they work. I can always install something else if they don't work.
Regards,
JohnL
