chartplotter / fishfinder questions

Hello,

I''m in the market for an inexpensive combo chartplotter / fishfinder (for depth meter use only). My budget is $500 or so. I have been doing research and there are many makes and models available.

Screen sizes range from 3.5" to 5". There are both color and monochrome displays. Resolutions range from 240 X 240 to 480 X 480.

Any comments so far?

Particular models I am considering are
Lowrance M68 C S Map
Eagle FishElite 480 and 500C
Garmin GPSMAP 178 and 178C Sounder.

Anything else?

Thanks!
Barry
