Default What is a good chart plotter without a sounder

I was wondering what you guys thought that would be a good chart plotter without a sounder.My dad has a 22 foot chris craft crusing boat he wants a gps unit for it so trying to find something that is good and easy to use.I would like to stay with garmin if I can I think it would be easier for him to use and operate.Should I stay with one that has a sounder so I will have depth with a transducer the boat has a depth finder now but its not very good.I would do a through hull transducer for better readings.

Garmin has a reputation for being very easy to use.
721,547, 527 ..are a few to start with.

If you can find a 740... they are discontinued but still very good units.

Fro 5" screens the 50s

if you don't have a depth gauge of any kind i would definitely do that.

I agree Garmin is very simple to operate.
