I haven't had as much experience with different models of Hummingbird depth finders as some others may have, but the ones that I have had experience with are not anywhere near the performance level of Lowrance/Eagle for finding structure or fish. I haven't experienced the Garmin 240, but it keeps getting high marks from everyone who posts about owning one on many different message boards.
Like I said, I haven't been on the water with all types of Hummingbirds, but the experience I have had with them has convinced me not to ever buy one again. I would like to see the Garmin 240 in action and based on that future experience, my next DF will either be a Garmin or another Eagle. As far as I can tell, many Eagle models are the same as similar Lowrance models except for a lower price.
Of course, this is just my opinion based on the limits of my own experience. (smile)
Good luck and good fishin'
