Any thoughts on these two fishfinders. Need to replace my old Raytheon and I am looking at these two. The Furuno is more expensive but has more power. Both look like great machines.

Go with the known. Garmin makes GPS's
Furuno makes bottom machines.

Sorry I can't comment on the Garmin, but you'll be hard pressed to find someone who doesn't consider the 582L a very fine sounder.

Haven't run a Garmin.
I do own the 582L and I love it. Especially since I got some hints on how to change the factory settings to get better performance.

Good Luck

Thanks for the input. Picked up the Furuno today and will install it in the next couple of days.

Monarchy, wanna share some of those hints? I've only had mine for a couple of months so I haven't figured out all the tricks t it yet.
