When I step aboard a fish­ing boat, one of the first things I do is check out the elec­tron­ics. A helm filled with a mod­ern ar­ray of ma­rine elec­tron­ics tells you a lot about the boat and its owner.

You might not own a high-pow­ered off­shore fish­ing boat glow­ing with two or more fully in­te­grated mul­ti­func­tion dis­plays, but to­day the tech­nol­ogy has trick­led down into smaller, af­ford­able mod­els right at home on smaller craft.

This year’s crop of new ma­rine elec­tron­ics in­cludes a num­ber of great ex­am­ples of this trend: down­sized, sim­pli­fied and com­pet­i­tively priced.

Let’s look at 10 new ma­rine elec­tron­ics prod­ucts you can ex­pect to see at boat shows and in dealer show­rooms in 2018.
