Fishfinder/Chartplotter

In a conversion of almost Damascian proportions I'm thinking of buying a four stroke motor, and if I do then I will want to hook it up to an NMEA 2000 fishfinder plotter.

Any reccomendations under a grand? I think the extra bells and whistles will help me overcome the profound shame od owning a four stroke I don't much fancy advansea by the way

A few Lowrance sensors & you can have data glaore on your 2- stroke......

Best of both worlds!

Anything with a Lowrance badge on it. Navionics charts + Lowrance literally wrote the book on NMEA2000.
