Default What would you do with $1600?

I need to buy a GPS MAP quick before my new-found money gets absorbed into the joint savings account! Id like to replace my Eagle 480 depth finder with a color depth finder/GPS. I fish inshore and the Gulf offshore to 100. What would you buy for $1600? ;?

I won't be able to spend all your $1600, so treat your wife to a spa treatment with the change.

The FURUNO FCV585 COLOR FISHFINDER with an Airmar Tilted Element B60-20 Furuno will cost about $1300. If your boat helm area is small, you can go with FURUNO FCV620 COLOR FISHFINDER 5.6. That would cost about $900.

I just installed the 585. It is awesome!

At that depth a Furuno color 600 is plenty, and a Garmin Map 173C will leave about 600 in your pocket. Talk to Jim at Boe Electronics.

Go to Boatersworld.com and grab a Lowrance LCX-111C HD for $1299 before they are all gone. Next best price on that unit is around $2000.

Wow that is a HELL of a deal! I just paid $1399 for the LCX-26c HD from Bass Pro. That LCX-111c HD is a REALLY nice unit.

But it's HUGE, you gotta have ALOT of room to install that baby.

It took me 3 days to do a completely custom mounting install just to fit the 26C HD, I couldn't imagine tryin to fit the 111C HD on my boat!
