    is the Furuno RDP-139 10.4" Navnet MFD/Navigation/Radar unit outdated equipment?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Furuno-RDP-1...-/182456769846

    w/ a GPS connected can this unit be used as a chartplooter and also mark my spots? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Raytheon-Ma...-/122144135746?hash=item1c705b9a42&rmvSB=true

    w/ a fishfinder connected can this display display the fishfinder?

    been reading a little on raydar still confused on the terminogoloy like sounder/ black box sonar/DFF1

    I understand this display is about 15 years old and proballey doesn't have the lastest map,

    I intend on having local people from the Gulf coast to provide coordinates L/L hopefully I can save as way points and be able to navigate back to these spots.
    so using the older raydar like this I really don't need the latest maps correct?
    Thanks STB



    Thanks STB
