Default Furuno 582L versus 585?

I just upgraded my 582L with a transom mounted 600w ducer to a new Furuno 585 with a thru hull 600w ducer.

Will I see a substantial difference? Can anyone tell me some tips for the 585 to get optimum performance? I mostly tuna fish and occasionally billfish out of Ocean City, MD.

You should have a larger, brighter, higher resolution picture with more bottom detail. I noticed a very big improvement when I did it on my old boat last year.

I find the user interface easier to use. I had to go to a Airmar TM258. Couldn't get the through hull transducer to work. Extremly happy with detail... I can see bait, fish, & thermoclines.

Great Choice I think you will be pleased with the difference.
