Default salt fresh water electronics

If you fish in salt or fresh water would it be better to get a salt water one. cause won't
the units be exposed to corrosion.

Are you talking about a fishfinder or other electronics. I didn't realize they made freshwater specific fishfinders. I know some transducers are for freshwater but not because they will corrode in saltwater. Trolling motors yes, I would buy a saltwater one.

fishfinders thought there was a difference because of the salt corroding them like the trolling moter.
