Just one name for the echo sounder, Lowrance.
Reason? The better lowrances are very high powered therefore give good definition of the bottom and with practise you tell the difference types of bottom conditions and identify wreckage. Having seen the difference when we had several ribs over the top of a wreck the lowrance was the clear winner and some of cheaper ones couldn't even pick up the wreck when diven right over the top.
Hopefully you have the console space to have a separate GPS and echo sounder which makes wreck location much easier with big screens rather than using split screen option.
