Replacing GPS

Recommended Posts


Hope you are all keeping well.  My '08 Sig 270 has the original Garmin GPSMap 540. The screen is getting cloudy and I think I am in need of an upgrade. I am interested in something with a larger touch screen.  My current GPS works well enough, once I bought a US coastal waters SD card at considerable expense, but ... 

What say ye for potential upgrades?  Shall I stick with Garmin or is there a better choice?  Is Navionics capability a good idea? 

Thanks in advance for all your suggestions.

I prefer Garmin for Florida and Bahamas, but you may vary in another locale. Had a 942xs on my last boat and it was more than adequate. Still ended up using my phone more, but it was nice to have both.
