I have the 28cHD just because the 27 wasn't available at the time I purchased my boat. They are identical other than the fact that the 28 has an internal hard drive. I don't do any sonar logging so I can't say that it really makes that much of a difference to me. Obviously you can store more on the HD than you can with the standard memory that a typical graph has, but I wouldn't hesitate getting the 27. If I were to start logging data for some reason such as building my own topo maps then it may be more important, but the memory isn't an issue in my situation.

If you also don't care about the memory, then I'd save the money and get the 27. I can't say anything bad about my 28 so far. Great screen resolution and haven't had some of the problems others have had with other newer models losing bottom at speed, etc. I don't plan on updating the software anytime soon either because I don't want to get a buggy program!

I just got the 27c and I cannot be any happier. The 2" diag extra of screen correspond at actually almost double viewable size. I ma learning all the features it has and I cannot stop saying "wow" every time it turns on....

If you need recording check the SD max memory size you can add, if it's 2 or 4 gb I wouldn't need the hard drive, which adds weight also.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
