I am finally at a point in my life where i can own a nice boat.After ALOT of research ive determined i want a 24' Everglades bay boat. Now the next obstacal i must tackle.... GPS/Chartplotter/Fishfinder. I have 2 questions for you guys.

2 Put money into consideration. What is the BEST GPS/Chartplotter/Fishfinder setup for the price?

Money no issue: Front and helm mounted Garmin 7612s networked together with gt 52hw and a trolling motor mount panopix.
Best for the money: Garmin 94sv with the gt 52 hw.

Transducer selection is based on inshore fishing under 100'.

Before transducers can be discussed we need to know how and where and for what you fish for.

Both? I don't know what's available really. Let me put it to you like this... my last boat was a 91 sunbird with some no name fishfinder. I've never had the money to even dream about owning anything like this.

Garmin 7600xsv with a B175hw and a Gt50 would be the suggestion

7600xsv, offers some of the most intuitive units in the marketplace, the ability to run multiple frequencies and transducer technologies. Built in cartography that may find to be very easy to read


GT50, This transducer will allow you to have Down Vu , Side Vu as well as Medium frequency CHIRP


B175HW hands down the greatest transducer in its class for target separation and separation in the wter column as well as pulling fish off of the bottom
