What would be the best depth finder w/temp. probe for the money. It will be on a 20 ft. cc. I fish both inshore and offshore (15 miles). Not looking for the very best, just best value for the buck.

Furuno LS6100. There is no other unit that is even in the ballpark.

Buckets,
I know you asked Thom, but I will give you my two cents worth. I had a 582 on my last boat, it is the best of the best. I fish under 200 ft, so the 600 for me was the best deal for the money. If you fish really deep water than the 582 may be your best deal for the money, but I would say from 0 to 400 or 500 ft, the 600 is the best for the money. The 582 has knobs instead of buttons, which is nice.

I really can't tell you about the 582L. I just got mine about 2 weeks ago. I sold my 600L to a fellow who posts here on this board (the was a coincidence, I sold it on E-Bay) and added money to the sales price and got the 582L. I do fish in deep water and it was that depth and the need for more power that made me make the switch.
