Default Garmin echomap 94sv transducer

i just purchasd one of the 2018 model 94sv with the CV51 transducer. Due to a comedy of errors, the transducer was lost. Now I'm thinking since I have to buy a new ducer, is there one that would provide much better capabilities for similar costs. What is the list of compatible transducers rated by price and functionality?

thanks!

Get a GT51...if you wish to have side scan..or a GT23 if you only need Down scan and tradtiaonal.
Both of these transducers have the same exact Down scan and traditional CHIRP.
The GT units have a better down scan than the cv...so if down scan is important..look at the GT units.

Will I see a significant improvement using the GT51 rather than the CV51? The CV is available for $160ish and the GT is closer to $465. I just want to make sure I get enough bang for my bucks. Please PM me with your price on the GT.

If down scan is important.... than the GT version is better... That is the only difference between a a cv and a GT .

A GT51 is $469

semper...what about the GT41? My application is primarily bottom fishing from near-shore to ~300ft. Is the 41 capable enough for solid down/side view plus traditional at those depths?

The GT51 and the GT41 have the same exact Down and Side scan elements...no difference in performance there.

The GT51 has a full CHIRP traditional elemetn that fires 80 thru 160 kHz...

The GT41 Traditioanl is not CHIRP.. fires 50/200 kHz only.
