    Hello all-

    I am going to be buying a new unit for a jon boat to fish lakes and some rivers around me. I am trying to decide on these units. Im not looking to spend more than $200 total. If there are any others you all might think be worth looking into let me know. Thanks for any input/info!

    Under $200, get the humminbird 565. It has real time display and you can watch your bait move.

    I picked up that 565 today. Thanks for your input. I decided to spend the little extra as it has alot more pixels and seems to be a little more powerful. I've heard of alot of humminbirds going down but hopefully I've got a good one out of the box. Ill get it installed next weekend and try to have it on the water soon.

    Thanks again

    I have a chance to possibly get a Hummingbird 4000. Do any of you have this unit in use now ? If so do you like it ? I have not seen this unit yet they say it is in great condition. All opinions on this fishfinder will be of great help in my decision. Thanks

    I have decided to get something newer than this unit Sounds like this one is pretty much out dated !!!!! Thanks
