Garmin Transom Transducer / Hydraulic Steering

Couple of questions

I'm looking to change to hydraulic steering on a Suzuki DF 150 any recommendations on system and supplier.

Also looking to upgrade chart plotter to include depth gauge etc. looking at Garmin 551s and Garmin Transom Mount Dual Frequency Transducer

Advice appreciated.

Thanks

Sea star hydraulic system ,fitted one on my boat last year bought mine off eBay cheapest i could find new fitted it myself as well simple to fit, I also upgraded GPS from 551 to Garmin 720 great unit if you have the space go for the 750s or 720s

If you can stretch your budget to a Garmin 555s or 556s then it is worth it, you get a much better display and the performance is better too.
