Choosing the right fish finder

Choosing the right fish finder - 06/17/19 02:54 PM

Looking for suggestions on which fish finder I should go with. Some information on the type of fishing I do, Iím fishing from a kayak so water is about 5í - 50í at the most. Iím interested in a unit that has the side imaging feature and a screen size minimum of 7Ē My budget is up to $600 and Iíve looked at the following,

HB Helix 7 g2n
Lowrance Hook2 7x triple shot
Garmin striker plus 7sv
Garmin ECHOMAP plus 73sv (discontinued/clearance)

All of these Iíve been able to find around the same price give or take a few dollars. I would like to hear from yíall if there are other units out there that I should consider as Iíve never owned a fish finder and I want to make the right choice.

Thank you

The Humminbird Helix 7 CHIRP SI GPS G2N is discontinued also.
The Helix 7 CHIRP SI MEGA SI GPS G3N replaced it and is the current model.
Unless you are not planning on linking it to another unit, there is a less expensive version that is not networkable---G2 or G3.
