Going to put one on the new boat and was wondering if anyone had any input on these? I'm staying with the side mounted instrument panel so I can't go too big, but I do want to go big enough to be able to see it when I'm driving. Any ideas? Also if you have any pics of your mounts on those side instrument panels please share!

Too small of a plotter for me. I'm looking for something 6" or bigger in terms of the screen.

Well the Garmin 76 series goes from 8 inch screen to a 26in screen not sure what size you're looking for then

When I searched online the only one that came up was very small. I'll check again thanks.

Here's the link to what comes up:

Went on a guided fishing trip with a guy that had the SIMRAD with the Google Earth overlay. That thing was awesome. It even had the oyster bars highlighted.

I like the raymarine axiom for that very reason and you can tilt the bottom that you're looking at to see the fish and whatever
