Lowrance ifinder H2O c

Question

PFUNK

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

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.
