I'm taking a look at upgrading my Navigation and Sonar system, I made the mistake of upgrading a few years ago and went way too small. I have a 21.8 CC Sailfish and currently have the Garmin 62. I'm taking a look at either the Garmin 1242xsv or the Simrad NSS12 evo3. I mainly drift fish and troll in 100' - 200' around Palm Beach to Jupiter. Any preferences, pros/cons, advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
However this is afternoon both units started acting up and would go dark after about a minute. I didn't have a ton of time to play with them so I'm hoping someone hit a setting when I wasn't at the helm.
I know others who have these units without issue but just wanted to share a few thoughts.
On the positive side the issue caused me to read the manuals again and I found a bunch of things I'm going to start using.
