Here is the most recent review, from Feb. If you search in titles "best GPS" or Garmin you will find a lot of posts. I've been watching too to find a new one for one of my boats.

i see the 498c which has now superseded to the garmin 520 ..seems compact enough for a helm...not looking for 1 with a 10 inch screen etc...

also wonder if people are using a in hull otr a thru hull (hole in bottom)..

Garmin 276C....but no transducer, strictly a chart plotter. Good unit though. Paid $420 for it last fall.

i looked at the 530s, from what i gather the unit comes with the dual transducer where the 530 does not ,needs to be purchased seperate..

looked the the 4 series , only differance is the added inch in screen.

i will assume people use the in hull transducer ,cause i never seen 1 hanning off the back of a cigarette before
