How much of a difference is there betweeen the color H20 and the B & W one? Is the only difference the color? I might be getting one for Christmas and if there isn't much difference, I will go with the B & W one and get more presents.

I believe it also has four more channels for receiving the signal (12 for the b&w and 16 for the color). I went with the color because it's night and day for seeing the detail on the screen. It uses batteries faster, but if you're able to run it with the 12v cord it helps. Good Luck!

Go with the color H20.... much easier to view .. especially if you get the lakemaster chip you can see the dropoffs better.... Just use recharagables to always have a good set of batteries.

BigMinnow nailed it! Color is the way to go. I have the color but have fished with others who have the B&W, and they have all said they wished they had the color instead. You won't regret it!

If you could get the Lowrance iFinder Expedition C for the same price as the H20 color, would you?

What are the advantages of one over the other?

I would go with the color, everyone is right it has way better detail! I buy my batterys at Northern Tool and I get a 24 pack for like 3 bucks - they last quite a while and for 3 buck you can afford to use them! Good Luck

      Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye! On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too! On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report. We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!

      Gophers are turning the program the right direction... getting Coffey to come really opened eyes of local kids to consider the U... Hope they keep it up. Great game with WI... lost in OT but really well played game by both sides.
