Highly recommend that you go with Furuno the next time around considering
the type of cruising you are going to be going. Most of the techs that I
have talked to that sell both usually recommend Furuno, particularly the
radar, because it is more of a commercial grade product as opposed to
recreational use. I do not, however, recommend the Furuno autopilot. I
have had continuing problems with mine since it was installed 2.5 years ago
by Anacortes Marine Electronics.
