Default Garmin GSD22 vs GSD24?

I'm thinking of upgrading my fish finder on my boat which is the older GSD22 paired with Airmar M260 1kw shoot through hull ducer. I am thinking of upgrading it to the newer GSD24. Before I do so I would really like to hear what y'all that are running the GSD24 think of it and especially any of you that have used both the 22 & the 24. Any info will be helpful!

Night and day difference, GSD24 so much better, much more detail and target separation,

The GSD22 is an analog design..and even on it best day..was only marginal.
The GSD-24 is a very good digital unit and has an excellent following...the first Garmin sonar unit that was truly a salt water capable.

I had the 22 and changed it out to the 24. It was a great improvement which makes my 7212s almost like a commercial sounder vs a recreational sounder with the 22s.

I run a Garmin 7212 with GSD 24 and TM 260 ducer, and holy crap I am blown away by the performance.

X2 just got mine switched out and what a difference in bottom detail as well as the target separation.

If I have a Garmin 4208 and a stern mount transducer can I upgrade to the GSD24 and see a difference?

Normally yes.
It also depends on the model and condition of your current transducer.
