Question Depth Finder on the fritz

Hey guys,

Had an older Eagle 300 series depth finder in the front of my fishing rig. A couple of weeks ago the thing just stopped working in the middle of a trip. After I pulled it out I determined that it is still sending a signal to the transducer as I can hear it clicking and the buttons "beep" when I press them, so apparently the LCD screen has gone out.

So, what's everybodies favorite for a stand alone sonar unit that I can mount in the front of my boat? Something in the sub $200.00 range? What brand is hot now, Eagle, Humminbird, Lowrance, other? I tend to quit keeping up with what's good in stuff like this after I make a purchase and I've been out of the market for about 5 years.

2005 F250 FX4 6.0 Powerstroke CC SB; No Cat; High Idle Mod - TOTALED!
2005 F250 Lariat 6.0 Powerstroke CCSB; Scangauge II

Any Garmin product is far better (imo) than the ones you listed, but you'll be hard pressed of findiing one for -$200.00.
