Default Suggestion for a flush mount fish finder

I recently moved from a 1989 mako 23 to a 1999 Pursuit 2870WA. In my mako I had a Humminbird 400TX fishfinder which I think was excellent. I now have a Lowrance GPS/Sonar in this boat, but I think the sonar is a little crazy. I want to buy a fishfinder for this boat but think that the only option would be a flush mount fishfinder. (only option that will look good due to the neatness of the console) I thought the Legend series (from humminbird) looked good but wrote to them and found out they don't have the flush mount option.

Any opinions on what I should get and that would match my boat. Although the humminbird 400tx has an option for a flush mount installation, I think the 400tx was ok for the Mako, but it may look a little off in my newer (more expensive) boat.

I was even considering changing the gps to a Garmin 2010 but not too convinced about the GSD20 sonar. I guess I like those two separate.

Well, I guess what I need is help on guidance regarding what kind (level) of electronics I should get for a 80K+ boat.

I use it for both kind of fishing, bottom and throlling.

Thanks for any advice

Cooper has great taste. I agree with his suggestion. If you have extra $$, get the 2010 instead of the 2006. That is what I would expect to see on an 80K boat.

I think the best unit on the market today is the new Raymarine DM series.

Can you send PICs of where you want to mount it? I agree, stay with the high end equipment if you can afford it. It just plain looks better and usually is better. Garmin, Furuno, and Raymarine fill the bill. You're in the ballpark. It's funny, but I always think of Humminbird for bass boats; with Lowrance not far behind.
