Simple chartplotter/sounder

I currently have a garmin 50s. It works pretty good but it seems like a pia to start a track and end the track at the end of the drift. I have to go through so many steps to do this. I have a 20' open skiff and its often wet. It would be nice to be able to just push a button or two and the track starts or ends. Im wondering if anyone can suggest a small profile, water resistant, easy to operate with gloves on combo machine?

Love the Humminbird Helix series. Easy to use, quick and easy to start a track, and it's part of the bundles sale with Navionics so if you get a Helix unit you get the Navionics+ chip for $99: http://www.navionics.com/en/navionics-bundles and http://humminbird.com.au/product-cat...eries/helix-5/

Stick with Garmin. Just upgrade to a newer model.
