G-Flat
The G170 (shown, $8,000) and G190 ($12,000) displays from Raymarine integrate radar, navigation and fishfinders on high-resolution split screens. Best of all, the units' footprints are only slightly larger than the displays¿'they're all screen with no wasted room. Both flat-screen monitors feature sunlight-viewable display technology for maximum visibility in all light conditions. And just in case the bite's not on, nine video inputs offer quick access when connecting the system to a satellite TV or video-game console. Raymarine; (603) 881-5200; www.raymarine.com
