I'm getting a boat my senior year of college and I have saved up $2000 from my internship. What would you guys recommend for graphs on the console and the bow? Or would it be more worth my while to just get one on my console.

I would get the brand that links to your trolling motor.....if you get a TM that can do that. I suggest console and bow, don't forget a map card!

Id never suggest a 9. The size isnt the only difference the picture quality is very different on a 9 vs 10.. I was steered wrong by a salesman at bass pro. The pixel count or whatever is much lower on the 9.

That is correct!

The housing for the 9 and the 10 are the same but what you mentioned is the reason to pass on it.

He also said maybe just buy one...

My post was meant to be informative sorry it must have offended you, not many people know 9 vs 10 in quality. A simple thank you would have been fine if you didnt know.

You didn't offend me, you're not that good and I'm very familiar with the differences between Humminbird graphs thank you very much. thumb

I have 2 elite Ti 9 inch units.(roughly your price range)I'm not sure I made the right choice by not purchasing helix units. But I'm happy with them and they have certainly allowed me to catch more fish

This might not be a popular answer here and I’m not afraid of the criticism, but I’m going to go a different direction and say SAVE/ INVEST your $2000....
