    Default Side scan fish finder chartplotter

    I'm thinking of upgrading my current Garmin 740s chartplotter/ fishfinder and I really want a side scanning unit. Preferably not another Garmin as I'm not overly impressed with my current one and the lack of available charts other than Garmin. So I'm wondering if some of you guys have some oppions advice on some units.

    Thanks

    I have had two Humminbird units and while they worked pretty well, just make sure you place the transducer in an area that will allow it to work properly. On my Lake & Bay, I always had interference from the motor. I'm sure a thru-hull transducer would fix the problem.

    I have lowrance. I just need to learn how to use it. With humminbird you can link to I-pilot.

    If you are running in FL Get a Simrad or Lowrance unit and run an FMT chip in it if you want the best mapping.
    They just posted two new demo videos. One for SFL and one for NFL. About 3 hours of viewing if you are interested.
