Default Looking for second sounder or plotter

Have a 19ft cc ,been having problems with transducer. When pulling boat at season end will be changing transducers. Not liking the feeling when you cant tell how deep you are. So think I will add something incase this arises again. Currently have a garmin 740s. What would be a suggestion for a backup sounder or combo unit? Plan to haul boat to unfamiliar waters and don't want this problem again ,thanks.

Anything works. You can even by a gauge that just shows depth. What is your price range?

Price range ,several hundred maybe more depends on whats available and of decent quality.. Any brand name suggestions, guess I will need second transducer,to keep them separate. Just want to know how deep boat is always. I like the chart pages on the garmin 740s. Was hoping for a simple fix to have a backup.

Do you want new? Used? Does brand matter?


If you don't want a backup fish finder/GPS and just want solely a depth you can get away with it with something like this. http://m.overtons.com/modperl/produc...ls.cgi?i=80325
