Default Need FF/Sounder advice

Just lost the ducer to my garmin 400c, not in love with it and want to upgrade. My main unit is furuno navnet vx2RDP148...don't have the black box and weighing the options if I should go there. Fishing a 20 foot outrage so need to transom mount the ducer. My other gps unit is garmin 541s and the sounder is like tits on a bull-useless. Based on bb sounder addition plus ducer, cost wondering if I should go with something like a furuno 600l or sitex sounder.

Primary fishing is offshore bluefin and sharking...groundfishin and inshore striper and bluefish...I's Maine..our fishery is huge. Thanks for the advice

I also agree and think the Garmin 1040xs is a great unit. Sounder is built in, CHIRP, price point, and product support are some of the many reasons. Please feel free to email or call us of you need any further assistance, we would be glad to assist in any way possible.
