I have no experience with the Eagle Cuda 300, however from my experience with Eagle and Garmin products generally, I would say go with Garmin.

We have some Garmin 90's at work - they seem to work well and I don't think there have been any problems with them.

we have a couple of Eagle cuda 128 sounders on the ribs. Been on there for 4 years or so. Easy to fit, easy to use and cheap as chips around 65. Transducers siliconed into the wells instead of where they are supposed to go over the stern.
Brilliant-still sounding with no hiccups at WOT, no problems with waterproofness etc. - compared to the hummingbirds we had before they are in a completely different class. We only bought the first one because a client had one on his boat and was chuffed with it.

Agree with all of this.

Garmin sounders are prone to fail. My mate has had 2 fail within 2 years.
