Eagle FishMark 320 or Garmin 140

Just about to purchase a fishfinder, down to either the garmin 140 or the Eagle Fishmark 320. The eagle seems to have the better spec, its about £20 more. Any thoughts on either units?

I think I've got the 140. The boats all covered up at the mo but it looks the same from a quick search.

My transducer is stituated in the rear sump well. It tends to lose the depth at high speeds.

Unlike the Garmin Chartplotter that is sat right next to it.

garmin 140

I have the 140 1st garmin we have had ,I don't like it.
The display is ok but it goes so off the wall in rough seas and at high speeds its no use whatsover.

I'm getting rid of it asap as having the page flash at me and refuse to update is fankly driving me batty.
just need to get an idea for replacement.
