GPS info

I'm looking to get a chartplotter/sounder for my 20ft Lund I just purchased. I want a combo unit that does everything, gps/mapping, depth/ff...cause I don't have a lot of space on my console. I also don't want to drop a grand on the unit...anyone have any experience with Eagle ?
I found this http://www.brokenlegdave.com/Manufa...ARTER_320DF.htm

and this Lowrance model : http://www.brokenlegdave.com/Manufa...-320_200KHZ.htm

My next question, how difficult is it to properly install the transducer ? I'd like to do it all myself to save $$, is this something that should be left to professionals ?

Any other units you guys recommend ?

Thx.

Eagle is made by Lowrance. Slightly fewer features and lower cost. Units are not sealed as well so you may be sending it back more often than a Lowrance. So if your time is worth money buy Lowrance. They have been around the small boat market longer than anyone.

The transducer will be mounted as a skimmer off the stern of an aluminum boat. That process is easy for the boat owner compared to needing three hands to mount the antenna to the boat rail But all in all the process is straightforward.
