Lowrance ifinder H2O c

3 posts in this topic

well guys i just sent in a payment for a lowrance ifinder H2Oc. Just looking for a little input on the quality of the machine. I've heard mostly good stuff about it, other than that it is hard to read the display during the day. Is this tue? Also is it good for using as a GPS unit for a vehicle. I was kind of hoping I could use it in the woods, on the water, and on the road. Finally, Lakemaster or Navionics? Which one is more accurate?

Pfunk, search H20c and you will find MANY subjects on these units. As far as which chip, really depends on where you fish. Navionics is more specific to area, Lakemaster, is state wide with additions of border lakes. Go to each of their websites and they list the lakes or area's they cover. I live in SW Mn and chose the Lakemaster, when I go to canada every summer, we have the Navionics chip because it is the only way to get Lac Seul lake map. but for me I get the most use out of the Lakemaster. The best is different for everyone but you will find equal numbers who like both due to area, or fishing preference.

Enjoy, I really like mine.

Had mine for almost 2 years now and love it. If you have the back light on you can read it fine. If you don't have the 12V cord it will eat batteries with the back light on. I use RAM mounts in my boat and truck and love the unit. I also use Lakemaster and have found it very accurate on debth and roadways. Nice thing about Lakemaster is you get county/township roads upgraded when you get it. Nav is mostly waterways. FYI Good luck with your H2OC

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
