Thanks for reply guys!
I evaluated all options and made decision to go with Garmin bundle.
I can write a review how it works.
Answering some of questions:
I mostly sail short handed / single
handed, so having display down below is not an option. Also relying on paper / electronic charts
is not always good way. Here in Holland
there is a place where depth can change due to sandy bottom.
Forward looking sensor is a great idea, but it's quite pricy for a sensor, and you need a dedicated proprietary display. I might buy it someday.
I do have handheld backups, no problem with that. I use iPad
as chart display (with 2 backups). I could send depth data there, but it's not easily readable.
If the current
wind sensor fails - there is no way for me to debug it - proprietary protocol that is nowhere described.
If the new sensor fails or 2000 fails - I can easily debug it - I have tools.
If any NMEA 1083 sensor fails - I also can debug it - but then it's usually finding the loose cables
, so I prefer NMEA 2000
in that regards.
