Default Furuno 1870f and airmar B175m ?

Hi everybody. Interested for a 21 foot boat, mostly bottom fishing and trolling 130-1500 feet. Trying to keep the cost down, and like the furuno 1870f. I am aware that the furuno is NOT a chirp sonar, but can I use the airmar B175M with it, and does it make sense? Would it be better than a B164 for the depths I like to fish?

1870F don't have support for any frequency in the Medium frequency band so 1870F with B175M will definitely not work.

Thanks Abbor, I didn't know that and you saved me from an expensive mistake. So I guess it's a B164 then, since a B260 is probably too big for my 21 foot boat?

Jaxy, I'm not too fond of touch-screens, and a Garmin 840xs is quite expensive for my budget, but I am tempted.

So then, furuno 1870f with B164 or TM260, or garmin 741xs with a B175M for mostly bottom fishing 130-1500 ft?
