Default Furuno 600L vs. Garmin 240

Guys,

I am upgrading from a Garmin 240 Fishfinder to a Furuno 600L.

I'm curious as to how much better performance I might expect. I fish in water rarely exceeding 150 ft, mostly under 100ft.

Will I be able to mark fish any better? Perhaps distinguish between bait and single larger fish ??

Thanks,

John from Madison, CT

John without a doubt you will notice a big difference. The 600L will mark live bottom much better than a grey scale. Best dollars I spent to bottom fish.

John,

I copied your question and reposted it over on the WMI Electronics board. You got a thoughtful reply over there that you might be interested in looking at. Here's the link: http://www.wmi.org/boards/electronics/T10529.htm#1

It's like the difference between filet and a chuck steak. There is no comparison. If the 600L doesn't impress you - nothing will.
