Hi Rich

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.
