Default depth finder

I have a 15' mckee craft and want to update my depth finder and possibly add a gps what is a good DF or DF/GPS combo that won't break the bank. I mainly fish flats or back water and occasional passes but like to see whats around me and I am interested in the gps units that tells you what the depth of areas are.

Check out a Lowrance chartplotter/dgps/bottom machine. They're pretty good and not too hard on the bank.

I have a Garmin 440s (GPS/FF combo) on my flats boat. Works just fine for me. Sure, a bigger screen would be nice, but for the extra expense and space taken up, it's really not worth it.

Get a Lowrance, you will not regret that purchase. The detail far exceeds anything else on the market.

This seems like a good buy. Per the Manufacturer, must be purchased by the 7th to get free chip. Nothing to do with this, just came across it on ebay. JOE

I have a Lowrance 527df/igps model on my 16 ft. The screen is just right so when you go split gps/sonar you can see stuff. It costs around 700.00 from Coastal Marine electronics. You can get the navigation chip that shows you bottom contours too for about 100.00.
