element hv 9 or echomap 95svuhd?

 I have just bought my first boat and am looking at getting a new sounder for it.

I have a 5.2 fibreglass cuddy cab with a lowrance elite5x that came with it.

Most of my fishing will be inshore or river intially but hoping to go further out on good days.

I am currently looking at re-doing the wiring as the gang switch has missing terminals and half don't work( i am assuming this is due to it previously having a duel battery set up of which the second battery is missing, along with the earth cable).

I have spent alot of time looking at different sounders and trying to work out which would best suit what I want but need some advice on which of these 2 would be better in the long run.

Cheers for reading

 Hey mate, I'm tossing up between the same 2 sounders at the moment, also looking at the lowrance elite fs9, any updates on the raymarine unit?
