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

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT

      Finally got a bird down.  A small jake, but a bird none the less.
