Default Looking for an X85 replacement for my dash....what should I get?

Here's the skinny - I have a '00 Stratos 295 Pro Elite that currently has a working Lowrance X85 unit in the dash. I am in the process of installing an Elite 7 Chartplotter/Graph on a Ram Mount, but I am also replacing all the dash pieces on the boat and thought I might upgrade the X85 while I am at it. This is what I am looking for -

Lowrance

Fits into the factory cut out that the X85 did

Affordable

It will be used only as a back up to my Elite 7 if it goes down or I forget my graphs at home

I will be mounting it inside the hull, like the X85 is currently

I was thinking a Mark 5 Pro might be a good upgrade at a very affordable price....What do you folks think I should do? I wouldn't mind stepping up to an ELite 5 or HDS 5 if I could find a great deal...if not there is really no reason for me to fork out the extra cash

Look at the Elite series from Lowrance. The Elite 5 is a color sonar and GPS unit for a suggested list price of $499.

Here is a link;
