Identifies the existence of fish reliably. Would have preferred the 550c to get higher resolution, but got the 500 for $200 (after rebate & free shipping). The 550c was an additional $150. I've found the resolution to be adequate, however. I especially like the fish alarm (beep). Don't expect detailed bottom images as supplied by some DSI (down scanning) fish finders. For this price point, you can't have both. (fish id & dsi). Seems to have been worth the cost so far. FYI, I've been using the device on a shallow lake (5-60 ft) with smooth sediment covered bottom contours. I did an easy custom install on my pontoon boat.

I am a fishing guide and us my sonar to locate Kokanee salmon and walleye in lake Nantahala, the garmin 500c does not loose the bottom and is clear and easy to set up. I use dual frequencies,the lake is 200' deep and the salmon are in 100' or more. I have already talked to some of my fishing buddies and told them what a great job the Garmin is doing.

This unit has replaced two older units, why did I wait so long???? The picture on the screen is clear and the set-up was a snap (once I had the transducer plug all the way into the unit. Using it now in freshwater lakes and later will use it to find Salmon and Rock Fish.
