Sounder Compare


Thought a few people may be interested in these comparisons.

The first set of pics is comparing a HDS Gen2 with P66, a garmin 8410 with M265 and a Furuno 585 with P66.

The second set is much the same, but includes the garmin with both a GT51 (left) and M265 (right). To be fair, i had someone hanging over the stern of the boat holding the GT51 so it isnt a great picture.

To make it easy, they were all just running in Auto, no zoom etc.

I always find it interesting when you can compare images of the same feature using different sounds.

so why were you doing this interesting exercise? Which sounder do you prefer and why? 

I've worked a lot with the furuno and prefer them but the latest boat I've purchased has a hds10 lowrance on it, and my son in law wants to go the the Garmin chirp which I've had zero experience with.
