Well, after less than 2 years, my Garmin 160 decided to give up on me. Rather than pay the $80 every time something is wrong, I think I've decided to just get a new unit. I don't need anything special, but I do want something decent. I really like the Lowrance x125, though it's probably a bit more than I need. Can someone explain the 60° Skimmer transducer to me? I spend a lot of time in shallow water and it's easy to miss targets with the standard 20° cone, but I'm not sure I understand how it works. The Eagle Fishmark 480 and the Bottom Line 480 both look great for the price, but I just haven't heard a lot about them. Lowrance seems to have the better reputation, though I'm sure either would suit me fine. Quality is my first priority, but at the same time I really can't justify a huge amount of money. Does anybody have any insight that might help me make my decision? Thanks.
