GPS info

I'm looking to get a chartplotter/sounder for my 20ft Lund I just purchased. I want a combo unit that does everything, gps/mapping, depth/ff...cause I don't have a lot of space on my console. I also don't want to drop a grand on the unit...anyone have any experience with Eagle ?
I found this http://www.brokenlegdave.com/Manufac...RTER_320DF.htm

and this Lowrance model : http://www.brokenlegdave.com/Manufac...320_200KHZ.htm

My next question, how difficult is it to properly install the transducer ? I'd like to do it all myself to save $$, is this something that should be left to professionals ?

Any other units you guys recommend ?

Thx.

Hi FF,
I recently bought the Eagle Fishmark 320 and could not be happier with it! My understanding is that many of the Eagle products are the EXACT same as their Lowrance brethren but at a lower price. (lowrance recently bought eagle)

i heard the Eagle product line was not fully sealed and ready to handle saltwater abuse ?
For 600-700 I could have a chartplotter/fishfinder combo, including the map chip.....I think I'm leaning towards Lowrance...although the Si-Tex Profish II might be an option....anyone use/see that model ?

can't go wrong with the Lowrance, the 320 has been awsome!!! really a top notch product and the price is right! i would recommend the navionics chart to put in it as well. the options and quality for the price can't be touched. the screen cover leaves a little to be desired as far as stay'n on in transit but pm me if you buy it and i'll tell ya a tric i use that works great and you would never know it's there... see reviews at west marine web page... d. shea/marlinslayer

I have some Garmin units, a GPS/chartplotter and a seperate fishfinder which ahve both gotten wet and stood up to the test very well. I think if you are handy you can install yourself. My set up was about a $1000 combined, but think you could get a littel lesser model for cheaper. Highly reccomend Garmin.
