    Also take into account what it is you are wanting to achieve with connection to the Suzuki. Do you already have the necessary adapters (if required), engine interface and NMEA 2000 network. If you don't they will significantly eat into your budget unless you are happy to do it later on. With the Lowrance and Simrad you will also need a memory module for fuel management if you want it. The Garmin fuel management is usually inbuilt.

    fuel flow is definitely something i want. the 1500ish is just sounder. when do i want it their no rush if their is something worth waiting for. what are you thinking moose?

    well miami boat show is coming up soon. and with that usually means new models from various brands. not saying you HAVE too wait.. or even if they will release anything. but if you are in no crazy rush... its not that far away .

    otherwise the elite 7ti will futureproof you to a good point

    It depends what you want to use it for. Elite TI with totalscan transducer are great value. if you want to go game fishing though you will need more power like a HDS.
