The 440 shows a darker blue to highlight where the channel is vs a lighter blue outside of the channel. Pretty neat.

same problem with the one above. Just cans for channel markers. The area i boat in is all shipping lanes so there are channels criss crossing everywhere and rocks all around them so its pretty vital i can distinguish what cans go with what. Right now its just a sea of red and green.

there are #s attached to the markers.
plus a chart should always be on hand for reference.

I think i'm going with the 440s so it can also be used as a bottom sounder/fish finder. Anyone know the best place to go? West Marine wants 699 plus 199 for the transducer.

Do a google search for 440s and you should find a ton of internet retailers. Some people have said you can find the cheapest one, print it out, and West Marine will match it.

I have purchased from www.gpsdiscount.com in the past. Best price at the time and I got the unit the next day.

Good thing is with West Marine they will honor the warrenty, not the case with a lot of the internet dealers. Let us know where you find the cheapest price, I'm gonna buy one soon.
