I'm currently shopping for a Fish Finder I looked at the 7" Screen...Garmin... Lowrance...Hummingbird
I'm leaning towards the Garmin I really like the clarity in the down scanning..and the side imaging... tell me why I should go with something different...I'm opened to suggestions

A friend of mine here on Cedar Creek went from a HB 899 to some kind of the latest&greatest Garmin w/chirp and he said it was the right choice. He looked at my 1199 and laughed.

I think I am in the market for a different fish finder also. I have a three year old Lowrance Elite-7 chirp. Last year it would turn on with no data and had to be unplugged to turn off. I called the service department and was informed that the unit needed updating. The instructions were on their web site which I followed. The thing still won't work and I can't understand half the conversation with the service department because they don't speak or understand the English language well. I would never have bought the thing if I knew it would be this much trouble! I may be way behind the times, but do they make a fish finder that will just work without updating? Any suggestions will be appreciated!

All the new units that I know of receive updates & those updates usually really help the functions of the unit.....
HB's are by far the best/operator friendly units I've ever dealt with....
The menus are easy to navigate & understandable.....
