Default Garmin 238/232

Anyone running one of these units?

The new boat is on order and trying to figure out what to do as far as electronics.

I like to keep things clean and simple and since this is going on a bay boat with no top
I was leaning towards the B/W screens rather than the color

Hence the input on the 238/ Sounder, but I hear they are discontinuing this model.
Anyone know why, or is just because the 2006 is basically the same size?

For those of you that have the 238/232, what do yo think?

My guess is that the B&W market is disappearing due to color competition. I use mono for GPS...I can tell where the land and the water are.....some apparently can't

The 2006 mono is so cheap now, grab one. Don't worry about why the 23x's are disappearing. As far as the FF goes, you might want to consider color...and color does help on a FF. You are better off with separate units...but that's a question of $'s.

I have a 232 and it's OK. If I had to do it over with the knowledge that I have gained I would do it with color hands down.
