Default Which Garmin

Which Garmin machine for a 20 ft center console ? I like the 547xs but want a bigger screen. How do the echo maps in the 7 or 9 inch compare to the 547. Don't really want to go with the touch screen 741s. Also should I go with a tru hull B60 or the transom mount gt21tm

I suggest a serious look at the Garmin 840XS as it has built in Chirp and a full 1 KW sounder

The echoMAP CHIRP 74sv and 94sv both have CHIRP Side and Down Vu built in as well as traditioanl.....and using either the GT51 or GT52 you would have a very good system.

I run the 74SV with a GT41 transducer. I fish the shallow bays down in south Texas and some times near shore 70-100ft. I couldn't ask for a better unit. It's done nothing but preform flawlessly.
