Default 4in vs 5in screens

(21 ft boat)
Who has a 4in screen for GPS and/or fishfinder? Is the size acceptable?

I had a 5in GPS in my previous boat and it was fine. I stay inland and don't "need" a GPS but would like one. I don't fish and really only need a depth finder. I'd like the Garmini 546s but it's alot of $$$ for my needs. The 441s has less resolution (so what), is an inch smaller but is $400 less. It seems like it would work fine for my needs but is that 1 in of screen the difference between seeing something vs not?

I have the garmin 430s and really wish I had the 5 inch screen.

you are not really comparing apples to apples.
the 441 and the 541 are the same but the 541 is a inch bigger and about $100 more i think.

The 546 has a bunch more features than the 541 and costs a bunch more $$>

I realized the 541 is the options equivalent to the 441 and the 546 is the "better" version. For my needs (and budget) I'm thinking the 541s is the one to buy. It's really only needed as a depth finder and a rare means to navigate new waters.
