Re: Chartplotter/fishfinder

I like the options the way redfish40 has with his setup and I think the 10in would be the way to go ...now to find out if the 10in can come with touch screen model...the gpsmap seems to have more options than the echomap version...thanks for the input.

Chartplotter/fishfinder

Looking to up grade my electronics to a garmin 10 in or 12 in unit...I have a 22 sea runner and would like to know which would be best . Does the 12 in actuallyt fit on the dash ? Does the touch screen have a larger screen than the manual keyboard unit? Any info would be helpful thanks.

LAKE ROOSEVELT REDBAND TROUT

If 2 are released for 10 kept it must mean that ther...
