Default NewtImer : Gotta Buy A GPS/Fish Finder... Garmin or Lowrance ?

So its gonna be the first time I get or even use a gps/fish finder combo or anything for that matter. My boat didnt bring one and I like to go out to the sandbars as well as fish. SO I really need one the thing is there are so many models to pick from that I dont even know what I want or need. Please help and give me some experienced knowledege as to what brand I should I go with and which model fits my criteria ? My budget it 600 bucks I want it color screen and very user friendly. Obviously I want it to plot and find me a good fish or two

I am looking for the same thing but I do not want a threw hull transducer, maybe someone can include whether it is a transom mount or not. Thanks Hope you don't mind I jumped in on your post

The type of transducer can be your choice...almost every sonar system in the price range mentioned here comes with a transom mount transducer.
