At that price the small Raymarine Dragonfly will be hard to beat. HD Digital, plus CHIRP Technology. Try the the 5 inch unit. Makes a difference when looking at split screen. I got mine form the US for about €350 delivered. It's been a while since I looked at Garmin units. Normally they are very good and have the advantage of better integration with the chart plotter and map source software.
