I have a Dolphins Super skiff and I am looking to upgrade my current Garmin to a 7" screen with depth finder/GPS combo. Any opinions on which one to get? go!
I just took a 5" Lowrance off of the center console my Dolphin that just fit between the Ritchie compass and the left side without over hanging. The right side was out because it would interfere with the throttle. I'm guessing you don't have a compass on top of your console if you're considering 7" screens.I have a Dolphins Super skiff and I am looking to upgrade my current Garmin to a 7" screen with depth finder/GPS combo.

Why would you need a compass if you have GPS?I have Garmin and think the interface and software is clunky and unsophisticated. I'd say the device itself is pretty bulletproof but then again the little sd card slot door is half-broken on mine. Customer support is great if you want to pay long distance. They'll talk to you as long as you want...
And if you put a compass too close to the GPS while it is powered, it will skew the compass reading by several degrees depending on how close it is. If you actually use your compass you wanna move that away.
Not being sarcastic, only because I did not think of it. Ha!
