I got a new one of these not long ago. Very happy. Charts are excellent and unit is compact but very usable and clear. No negatives really apart from compact size but for me that's a plus as it's on a sib so space is a premium. Hope this helps

Here's a 441s, The only thing I would say is go for the Garmin 451s and get a transducer, especially if you go fishing
