Garmin don't have anything similar to DowsScan and SideScan. My recomendation for you is a Lowrance HDS-7 and a LSS-1 StrucrureScan unit.

ok is the hds-7 a sounder as well? or do i have to add the lss-1 to make it a sounder?

if so this is what i have to do? buy the hds-7 (chartplotter) and then just add the lss-1? and now its a combo unit?

The HDS-7 is a plotter and sounder...if you want sidescan then you add the StructureScan module and special transducer.
