Furuno 585,nice unit not to big,capable of 1000 watt.Around 1300.00.In my opinion its a Furuno or nothing.Some people like the Hondex.I guess its what your used to.I got my first Furuno when I got rid of my paper machine so thats what Ive been used to.

Sounds like the furuno is way to go. Should i also go with 1kw and is that a transom or thru hull bronze. Thanks for help and any more info.
