I have a [1989] Montauk and would like to upgrade my fishfinder. I am considering [a Garmin 400c] or a discontinued [Raymarine DS 500 X] The [Raymarine DS 500 X] boasts digital technology. The Garmin does not mention the type of technology it uses. The Garmin new with [SONAR transducer] is under $300, or so; the [Raymarine DS 500 X] is a bit higher and is discontinued. Anyone have experience with the [Garmin 400C]? The [Raymarine 500 X]? THANKS. Jim.

I have the 300C--a slightly smaller screen than the 400C--and am thrilled with it.

With a larger screen and digital signal processing, the Raymarine DS 500 X has a lot going for it.

Go with the DS500. I used one on my Ventura for three years. Great display with easy to understand functions. I used mine in water from 3' down to 1100'. Good investment for sure.
