Garmin echomap 73sv or Humminbird helix si?

looking at buying a new fish finder/ gps combo. I have narrowed it down to the Garmin echomap 73sv or the Helix 7 si combo. Has anyone had experience with either of these? Struggling to make up my mind on which one I want. Both are on sale with The Garmin being about $100 cheaper but don't want to go just on price.

I have a Helix 7SI and I really like it. I too was heavily considering the Garmin, but after much investigation, it seemed as though, if you want the best GPS on your locator, get the Garmin, if you are more concerned with the imaging etc., get the Helix.......

The Garmin comes with several features that the Hummninbird does not. The Garmin has 17,000 lake maps built in where that's a $200 additional chip on the 'Bird. The Garmin also comes with Contours HD mapping that draws high definition maps in real time. No additional down loading to a computer. You can add a 360 degree transducer to the Garmin, not an option on the Helix.
