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

Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
