need a depthfinder / gps for a boat we just recently bought. Don't need anything too terribly fancy. will never go offshore with the boat, only plan to fish the creeks and rivers around Charleston. Any suggestions?

I have seen some good used GPS/Soanrs that give big bang for the buck.

So don't overlook our own trading dock here on THT.

I'm considering an electronics upgrade and will sell you a used but perfectly functional garmin 498 with 83/200 ducer for your budget. PM if interested.

I've got a Simrad CE32D I was holding for someone but they've stopped communication so if I don't hear anything by Sunday evening, you're welcome to it. I'll sell it to you for $180/shipped if I don't hear anything by tomorrow. I can package it up with a GPS antenna and transducer for $300/shipped. Includes power cord and bracket. This is a color unit, the sounder will put most others in this price range to shame.
