I have owned and used the FCV 585, the FCV 620, the FCV 295 and the Gp 7000f.

The Gp 7000F is an excellent unit but I would advise to go with a stand alone Furuno FCV620 and a stand alone GPS of your choice.
The GPs side of the Furuno is rather complex to operate and not as user friendly as say a Garmin or Raymairne.

The Furuno FCV series are a dream to use.

Pm me if you want an more information on them.

The darling of the industry is the Garmin 740s. Just try it. It's like a large Iphone. I like Furuno because they're a solid unit, but the interface takes time to learn. Not so with the Garmin.

I just looked at the garmin 740s. That is pretty sweet. Looks like it is all touch screen which is good and bad. I could envision procure marks all over it.

I'm not entirely sold on touch screen units for OPEN boats.....any brand. Inside a cabin or wheel house is probably OK. My other concern is the abrasion factor with saltwater. Very kewl but practical? not sure. The buttons on a standard unit can take some pretty strong finger punches when you hit a big wake/wave, but I wonder how tough the touch screen is. Just some cautions to throw out there.
