Default Go7 vs Go7 xse

Does the xse model do anything other than add the totalscan transducer? I am thinking about picking up the simrad, but mostly for the mapping. I have a small skiff and don't really have room to hang the large totalscan transducer. I can get the original go7 for a couple hundred bucks cheaper. If I don't want sidescan is there any reason to go with the xse over the original model?

I just did the same thing. As it was explained to me No unless your fishing you don't need it. I found mine locally through a independent dealer for 535 and did the b60 through hull for another 230 and I am quite satisfied.

Thanks slowlearner, may do the same.

Not sure on the transducer. Is there a standard transducer that comes with it? I would like the total scan, just don't think it will work on my boat, and probably a little overkill for my style fishing. I have a 15ft skiff with a tunnel. It has sponsons on the back. I typically fish backwater creeks. But do fish some deeper river mouths. Any suggestions?
