finally decided on a boat now i need help choosing the electronics. i like the hd7 touch and think i would put it on the bow. my query is what unit to put on the console. i want them to comunicate with each other and be able to see pretty much the same thing on both. should i get 2 of the sevens? another thing i was thinking of is upgradig to the 10 and putting a gimble mount on the console. any suggestions or ideas?

Simply put, you need to purchase the largest units you can afford. I've never encountered anyone that regretted buying a bigger screen. I've been running the Touch units for nearly 6 months and they perform great. The Touch 7 is available now, and the Touch 9 and 12 should be before the end of the year. For networking/communicating, just be sure both units are in the HDS series (either Touch, Gen1, or Gen2), then Ethernet-link them.

Personally, I'd want the bigger display up front, since I'd be looking at that most.
