Garmin vs Raymarine depth/speed/temp/wind instrument upgrade

While my Lowrance depth gauge is still working, the speed gauge isn't. I do not have a wind gauge but am interested in adding one. I live on a 2000 Hunter 290. I plan to start coastal cruising in Florida in the fall and then complete the Great Loop next year. The boat is being hauled on May 6 so I need to purchase the parts before then to reduce the length of time the boat will be in the yard. I will be having someone else do the work. I have a Garmin GPSMap 741xs.

Which system would you recommend for the instrument upgrade? Garmin or Tacktick by Raymarine? Price is a consideration. Would you consider refurbished or only new and why? And do you have recommended suppliers? I'm using Google as my personal shopper.

Thanks from a neophyte cruiser and boat owner.
