LOL! I see you didn't go out and buy a Hummingbird! (grin)
I can understand your frustration and it might have been a good public relations tool for them to honor an expired warranty, but then again... it was expired.
In any case, I don't have personal experience with every brand and model out there. I can only speak from my own experience and I will most likely buy another Eagle/Lowrance (biggest difference there is the price) when the unit I have "expires". They don't make the model I have anymore, but I found one on close-out at Walmart and bought it as a spare. It didn't cost me much more than a new transducer would cost me. (smile) I would like to see some of the more expensive, top-of-the-line models in action to compare notes, but I doubt many of them would be much more impressive in putting me on fish. I guess what I am saying is, if you use the equipment and the equipment works well, you become familiar with its idiosyncrasies and learn how to interpret what you see. I think this is true even with the most expensive units.
I have heard good things about Garmin and of course, I like Lowrance/Eagle, but I stand by what I have already said about Crummybirds...er, um, Hummingbirds. I have never used one that I had any confidence in. Time and experience may change my mind... who knows.
Good luck and good fishin'
