I have the 541S, the "S" means it is also a depth finder, and it works as a GPS perfectly. Mine does have the 5 inch screen, versus the 4 for the 441, but the pre-loaded maps are great for our area. The nice thing with the pre-loaded maps is you don't need to buy a map card. I think, as a GPS, they are as good as anything on the market.
Now that being said I'm not a big fan of how the depth finder works. I had a lot of trouble with mine, all corrected by Garmin, but it still doesn't come back to reading depths after losing it at extreme shallow or full throttle. I have to turn it off and then back on. I've had two of the 541's and other than the depth issue they've been great units.

I have the 441s and also had the same depth problem. I recently bought another boat and upgraded the transducer to the bigger model. Once it's mounted I hope it fixes the problem. What exactly is the g2 vision card for? What does it do?

In the fine print, some of the Garmin rebates specifically exclude amazon.com as an eligible reseller, be aware of that if you do choose to buy there-

PoppaDock they do make a chart plotter only unit that is cheaper by about $100 or so depending on the unit.
The cheapest prices that I have found on Garmin units is at xtremenavigation.com they are cheaper than the listed stuff on amazon.com
