[size:14pt][/size] So ive never used any kind of electronics. Ive got just a small 14' jon boat so i dont need something super fancy. I want to get something so i can see structure and also fish. Im tired of guessing and always coming up short lol. I want to spend around $100. Any suggestions on what would be the best??

for that price range I would just expect it to show you depth and some structure if you are luky. It is hard to get a good image at that price point. I would consider spending a little bit more if I were you , You will be much happier in the long run. but if you can not just plan on using it to find depth and it will not dissapoint you as much

A Powerfully Simple Fishfinder

Exclusive advanced HD-ID™ dual-beam sonar with transducer
4-inch diagonal, 8-level gray scale display
Transmit power (RMS)/(Peak-To-Peak): 200 W/1,600 W
Maximum depth: 1,600 feet¹
Frequency: 77/200 kHz included (supports 50/200 kHz)

The powerful, simple-to-use echo 151 delivers the technology you need to catch more fish. The built-in Garmin advanced HD-ID dual-beam sonar with a 77/200 kHz transducer (supports a 50/200 kHz transducer, sold separately) gives you excellent target separation and bottom tracking on the crisp 4-inch, 256x160 pixel gray-scale display. Its 1,600 W peak-to-peak power reaches down to 1,600 feet maximum¹, and the wide viewing cone angles (60/120 degrees) give you a big picture well beyond the sides of your boat — even in shallow water.
Mount and Go

It comes ready-to-go with a quick-release tilt/swivel mount and transom/trolling transducer mount kit. So you can get right to fishing.

¹Maximum depth dependent on transducer, water, salinity, bottom type and other water conditions.

See More for Your Money

The powerful, simple-to-use echo 101 has the compact, space-saving design and advanced sonar features you’d expect to find only on much higher-priced units. The built-in Garmin advanced HD-ID sonar gives you excellent target separation and fish arch definition on the crisp 4-inch, 256x160 pixel grayscale display. Single-beam (200 kHz) transducer with 1,600 W peak-to-peak power output dives down to a maximum depth of 1,500 feet¹.
Save Valuable Space

Its compact, space-saving design makes echo 101 the perfect companion for small craft. Includes a quick-release tilt/swivel mount, transducer and versatile transom and trolling motor mount kit to make installation a snap.

¹Maximum depth dependent on transducer, water, salinity, bottom type and other water conditions.


I had the 151 on my bass boat a couple years ago as a BETA test. I recently gave it to a friend that fishes catfish tournaments. This little unit has incredible detail and is so easy to use. For $100 you can't beat either of these units. Give them a serious look.
