I need any input,as to which chartplotter to buy. I don't want to just squander money, but I don't want that old,"if I would have just spent a little more,I'll get it next time"b.s. I can't see great, so I think I need at least a 8 or 10" screen,or even a 12! But I don't understand all those numbers like the 3208 vs the 4208s, or the4212vs 4012. This is not an offshore boat,it's a new 24' Pathfinder, bay /jetties/beachfront use.I've only had one old Lowerance[in 1995!],so I'm asking for input. One guy said the touch-screens/5200s are easy to use and great fun, but is that just overkill and a waste on a bay boat? Also- has anyone heard of any problems with the touch screen technology? My point is, I'd rather find a reasonable choice then go a little more,as I always regret scrimping in the past! I figure there's a ton of experence out there about this--so thanks for any help..
