Howdy!

I am reading mixed reviews online regarding GPS units. I am going to be running the bays 90% of the time and I want a reliable unit I can use to navigate with. Mostly because I am new to the bay fishing world, and unfamiliar with most areas.

Trying to keep it under $1300 for the unit, and would like for it to be 8-9". I am expecting to have to purchase Navionics as well.

I only need one for the center console. Do not need to run multiple.

Any input is gladly welcomed. Make, model, etc.

Thanks y'all!

Modern GPS is accurate to 15 feet of less 95% of the time. Were you place your unit and the use of an external GPS puck can help provide better accuracy in many situations. Navigation with a GPS only can still result in errors of measured distances of up to 30 feet in some cases.
