I've got the same one, awesome unit.  Controls are dead easy and pretty intuitive.
In split screen I can pick up a 1oz jighead & 5" tube jigging for Lakers in 100FOW, so plenty powerful enough for the yak.

I found it easier to use than my old Eagle models.

Thanks for posting a.review.  I'm looking for a ff for the yak.  Is it pretty simple?  I'm not looking for side scan, just a bottom finder.

Early last year I bought this Garmin echo 300c fish finder online from Costco for $200. By the time I got it set up and in the water it was already October. I have finally run my 7.2Ah battery dry after 16.5 - 17 hours of use. The c in 300c is for colour and is something I really didn't think was a big deal until I saw it in action. Much easier to read in direct sunlight and also to distinguish structure. I would recommend this as an affordable and easy to use option for yakfishers looking for a colour unit.
