Looking at upgrading my lowrance3 on ocean kayak prowler13 and thinking of Garmin 4 striker GPS combo, affordable price and has all the bells and whistles by the looks of it. Would a garmin4 striker transducer fit? Is it easy to do it yourself? Any thoughts/suggestions would be great. Thanks :)

Having second thoughts now.. Thinking to go slightly over budget and get 1 with charts.. Any recommendations without going too far from $200?

hmmmm have been reading and watching videos on this one.. We may have a winner! Alot over the $200 budget but hey, there's always extra points to earn hahaha

So with the charts, take it it comes with the NZ charts, do you need to get them updated every year etc? How does that work?
