GPS / Fishfnder combo

 Hi all,

I'm looking for a gps / fishfinder combo (hopefully under $1000) for my 20 foot ali. I'm a novice fisherman that doesn't venture west of Rotto.

Any recommendations of units and where best to buy it would be greatly appreciated.

Garmin 95sv

 I got an email from whitworths today and they are selling store stock of the Garmin Echomap Chirp 95sv for $1199. I paid more than that used for mine! I have it on a 23foot and it works really well for the price point. 

I think Garmin also have free chart cards by redemption for a few more days as well (check their website/facebook).

 Im far from an expert, but the mapping is great , and you do have the Bottom Lock facility.

In all reality I usually just use about 10% of what even the Garmin can do, but it works and seems to work well, and at current prices wont break the bank. If you upgrade in the future you will still have a very nice plotter in the Garmin.
