Best Fishfinder/gps For Around $600

Recommended Posts

Hello

What would be the best fish finder/GPS for around $600 preferably in color and with downscan and/or sidescan imaging, as right now in the boat (which is a Triton 17 Pro) there’s only a Lowrance Mark 5x in the drivers cockpit.

 

Would the Lowrance thru-hull transducer rule out other brand fish finders?

 

Also I only fish freshwater lakes and rivers, and I would buy and have it installed at Millers Boating Center in Florida (where I bought the boat).

 

 

Thanks

You can get a single unit that does Side Imaging, Down Imaging, dual beam 2D Sonar, GPS/Mapping with a single transducer and color display for less than $500.

Isn’t the built in Lowrance incompatible with humming bird?

 

My dad was suggesting the Lowrance Elite-7 Chirp, is Lowrance StructureScan worth it in the long run?

The Mark series is incompatible with any other unit of any brand. It is a less expensive stand-alone unit.

Compatibility means they will share stuff with other units

 

The Elite series is NOT Structure Scan compatible.

The Elite 7 CHIRP is available with or without GPS/mapping.

It does 2D sonar and Down Scan.

 

If you want Structure Scan which is Side Scan and Down Scan, that takes the HDS series.
