Default Best FF with B60 transducer

Need to get a fish finder to match up with my Airmar B60 - Any recommendations from someone that uses this transducer? Furuno 627? Sitex 650? Other?

I have a Furuno GP1870F, which uses the same technology as the FCV587, and like the unit very much. I think they are tough to beat and Furuno stands behind their stuff like no other. It is a 7" wide screen format but this works well for me since I like running in dual frequency in split screen and typically fish in less than 120' of water.

I hope to use the new WiFi feature for the unit this year and have a second viewing screen by my cockpit station.

(plus it can be a back up gps)

I actually really like the Sitex SVS 650 with the B60 vs the FCV 627/620.






Far less $..now they run new $495 and have a bit larger screen.

It can store 10 screen shots..
