Navigation Technology Education

I would like to get an explanation of the latest technologies (mfd, bluetooth, tablets, synchronizing navigation plans between devices, vector chart capabilities etc etc) so that I can try and figure out what I really want and need. Can you recommend any resources to get educated on all this technology? Thanks.

Panbo.
Google, of course

... and, if you're near a decent store with marine electronics, show up with a tray of coffees and a box of donuts on a slow Tuesday morning, and their electronics guy/gal would probably be happy to walk you through the latest stuff.
