I'm looking for a GPS and fish finder for my SPORT 15. The Eagle Cuda 250 is right in the ballpark as far as [price]. [Editor's note: The price of the Eagle Cuda is shown to be $219 on a vendor's website.] Any input is greatly appreciated.

Looks pretty good and it has a water temp sensor to boot.

Sounds like a good find then. I can't find any other gps/FF in the same price range. Here's my next noobie question. How do I hook this up to the battery? I didn't get the boat yet and I'm not sure if there is a fuse panel somwhere on it? Or do i directly hook it to the battery? thanks!!

Most small boat electronic devices include instructions with details about how to install and connect them. You should be guided by their recommendations.

If your vessel has a 12-volt secondary distribution panel you can connect a low-current device like this to the secondary distribution panel using one of the branch circuits. Only high current loads, like the starter motor of the engine, are usually connected to the primary power distribution system of a vessel.

I am stunned--figuratively--by the price point on this device. Using FROOGLE.COM I found it for $205. A GPS, a chart plotter, map cartography, a SONAR, and the transducer--all for $205. This is an amazingly inexpensive device.
