What are your fishing conditions?
How deep, what kind of boat and what are you fishing for?
Will yo need a new transducer?....and what system do you currently use.?

its a 26 foot WA Sea Pro. i live on lake norman with 10-100 feet of water, but also would like to go out to the gulf stream off NC for tuna/mahi. i have a raymarine fish finder w/ shoot thru hull type transducer, but would not mind upgrading.

For 7"' the Garmin 740s or even better the new Garmin 741xs CHIRP are good units to start with.
Easy to use and the 741xs CHIRP capability puts you into a state of the art CHIRP sonar.


And many THT members are going to the 740s as a chart with the 547xs as the sonar.

Another option for in your lake is the NSS7 with Structure scan.
