I really could not find the right place to post this question. We just bought our first bay boat - a used boat with 2010 electronics on it. We are considering an upgrade, and I am easily overwhelmed with all of the options and high prices. In order that I don't purchase the wrong unit, can anyone suggest brands, models and/or features to look for? Thanks for any input!!!

Check out Crutchfield.com, they have some good component picking options and will answer any questions you have.
They have a good selection of marine audio.

I prefer Garmin for ease of use. I also suggest West Marine, never thought I would say that, but with their available warranty, I swapped a unit out with a bad craddle last month, got the new upgraded model, only cost me another warranty and swapped it in the parking lot!

Thanks. Any particular features that I should look for or make sure that I have when I purchase a unit? I want to make sure I have something that will do for a long time. Thanks for any input.
