Upgrading RIB Electronics.

Hi, thanks for the help with my hydraulic steering conundrum hope im sorted now!
Im looking to upgrade from a basic Garmin 140 fishfinder to something with perhaps a built in GPS for finding the same position again.
Im thinking of a new Lowrance unit?
Anyone know of any sale items, or where to look for any deals?
Thanks in advance,
P Imo.

Check out the Garmin echomap 65. I upgraded from a Garmin Striker to the 65 and both the transducer and power cables from the striker plugged straight into the 65. Even the mounting holes were the same. A five minute job. You may be lucky and find the same with the 140. It saves the cost and hassle of buying and fitting new cables and transducer.
