I'm buying a skiff next week that does not have a depth finder or GPS unit. What brands would y'all recommend?

Simrad GO series is popular for touch screen.

Simrad Nss is more expensive but has buttons in addition to touch screen.

Simrad Cruise series for serious budget minded product but newly released.

Ray marine Axiom series is also getting popular.

Not personally a Garmin fan due to mapping limitations (proprietary Garmin maps only) but otherwise hardware is up there with best of them.

Can’t speak to anything Furuno in small boat stuff.

Your first choice should be "what navigation chip am I going to run on the unit?" Then find the best machine for that chip.

I have also been in the market for a new gps. I have been running my iPhone with Navionics for the past 3 years, but need something more dependable. Also, the Navionics satellite update is horribly. Pic was taken on a windy day at high tide.

Garmin bought out Navionics.
