Garmin GPSMAP 441S is a nice unit but it is getting older. I had one on my Trophy and it worked great once I updated the software.

I run a GPSMAP 740 with a Airmar P-66 triducer. Around 1200.00

I have the same setup - it works pretty well - except for the way the fish symbols work. If you like fish symbols you probably wont like Garmin.

one vote for Lowrance . . . . they're the Kings on fish finder stuff . . . I'm partial to their GPS stuff too . . and the newer units can be updated pretty easily (well, they all can, really) . . . the scanning programs are getting downright scary with the detail too!

Take a look at the Raymarine Dragonfly- CHIRP technology built in, excellent charting system, and right in your price category.

Another Lowrance Fan, I have a X-107CDF and love it, especially in saltwater. And it holds bottom at speed. No longer current and Fleabay is the only option.
