Cheap CHIRP sounder

I found this at WM.

I am on the fence about ditching my whole Garmin setup for the new AXIOM system. In the mean time I am adding this sounder for the season to improve my sounder picture. 

Online amazing grace

I don't know anything about this one, but like what it say's about it. For $250 with transducer and a combo unit I do not think you can go wrong. I have wanted to try a Garmin for years. Unfortunately my fun money fund is dry right now or I would give this one a try. Thanks for posting about it. Let us know how it works for you. I am really curious.

working 100X better than my old one. It even holds bottom on a plane. There are 2 weaknesses I see. It is a little low on  the power and it is extremely limited in features. I will use this this year and wait for the 3d sounder market to expand
