Default New electronics package, suggestions needed !

Just recently purchased a new to me Bayrider 2260. We yanked a jacked up radio and speaker system out of it along with the electronics.

We know we want Garmin. We will fish this boat in 100 feet and less in its lifetime. Mostly concentrating on inshore/nearshore. With all the additions to the market to Garmin lately, I'm lost. We had 740s and echo map 50 on our last rides. With thru hull transducers.

Something in the 6-7 inch screen range would be ideal. Transducers are another mystery. Traditional transom mount or thru hull ?

Ok brain trust...GO ! Please send any and all suggestions. Price range for this package would be 800 and less, if possible.

Look at a Garmin echoMAP CHIRP 74dv....it will include a transom mounted GT23M transducer.

Since you had a touch screen with the 740 my suggestion would be to stay with a touch screen such as the 741xs
