Average price: $100-$300
A good all around consumer fishfinder.The 140 is a very popular model and for good reason. Garmin builds good products. For someone looking for a good entry-level fishfinder, you’d be hard pressed to beat the 140.
This outputs 100w RMS for decent freshwater sounding accurate to around 400ft. Like all Garmin’s, it has several built in goodies to provide an accurate signal. You can select between narrow (14 degree) or wide (45 degree) views at 80 or 200 kHZ respectively.
The 320×240 grayscale screen is done very well, and about as small a screen as you’d want.
The Fishfinder 140 is a small step up from the 90. It has a bigger and crisper screen, which, in my opinion, is worth the difference. Retail pricing is often right above the $100 mark making the display upgrade off the 90 a good deal.See more Garmin fish finder reviews...
