I'm getting a new boat and am looking at different graph options. I was looking at the HDS series with structure scan, but I really don't want to spend over 1k per unit, and if I did go over that it would be the HDS 5, which seems tiny for side imaging.
If my research is correct, the chirp unit offers high quality sonar, down imaging, and chart plotting on a bigger screen. I'm leaning that way. Does anyone have experience with this unit? Likes/dislikes?
