Biggest screen and best GPS sub 500

Adding some electronics to my new rib I'm considering the 551S with a transducer for depth, is there a better model on the market than this for my measly budget ? Thanks

Both the 451s/551s would require a transducer to obtain the Sonar/Depth feature. These are not included as standard due to the wide variety of choice available.

Have a look in the bit n bobs section. There's a Lowrance HD5 Combi new/unused complete with transducer for 500. It's another option.
