I will soon... as soon as the wind lays down. I've been running the 585 for a couple of years. MY mix/match cable just came in so I can switch them out in the deep and see.

Why do you start a new thread almost identical to the one you started yesterday?

I have used the smaller siblings of the two, FCV-627 and GPSMap 527xs, (I have a 527xs and I've had both FCV-620 and FCV-627) and my recommendation is in the other thread.

They have the same CHIRP sounder module and 527xs actually has a higher vertical screen resolution than 1040xs (640 vs 600 points vertical) .
