Default Best depthfinder under $200

I need to replace my old one. I rarely fish in water over 80'. I need something with good shallow water and speed accuracy. Not really worried about color, just decent resolution. No GPS, no speed sensor, etc. Just a solid unit for my workhorse.

I'd first go to the new furunos, either the 585 or the 620. down in size as well as price, I'd go to the raymarine DSX 500 or 400

Across these choices, it comes down to price versus screen size ( though I think the 585 is 1000w which is more than I'd think you need). the performance will likely amaze you if your current unit is more than a few years old.

I haven't even looked at the Furunos. I'll check them out, thanks!

the new ones- the FCV585 and FCV620 are really nice comsumer units- a bit of a change for Furuno. Do look at them before you choose.


{edited to add}
I just noticed (DOH!) that you are looking under US$200.00. Nothing I mentioned comes in that low- sorry.

Even if you are just knocking around, I'd give these units a look, though. A really good fishfinder will change your fishing som much that I doubt you'd regret the money spent on it.
