You have 2 identical units (e.g. E80's), you have radar, gps, fish finder, capabilities. What would be your preferences for screen displays. Would you have say.... fish finder on one display and split screen on the other with radar/gps.

Depends on the situation....when I am running at 4AM out to the fishing grounds, I have the radar on one and the plotter on the other and the depth only in the data bar. Once I get close, the sonar goes full screen and the radar goes to standby as long as it is light and clear. If we are trolling with low visibility I still go sonar with one and then split screen plotter and radar on the other or sometimes overlay them both on a full screen.....The nice thing about the "E" series is you can have dozens of options on either...... Often times on the way out I have the "highway" mode split with the plotter as well.............

Exactly. It all depends on what's important at that particular time. I have twin C80's with chips in both units. If I'm running offshore it's usually chart plotter on one and either radar or magnified data on the other. Even the C series will give you dozens of options.

Like the others said, it depends on the situation. If your running, you dont really need the FF on. I would have the radar on one and the chart on the other. Once Im fishing, then I would have the FF on one, and the chart on the other with radar overlayed.
