Larger H2O Screen

Question

Warbucks

I have an H2O with the Lakemaster Minnesota chip. Absolutely incredible. However, is there another unit that takes the same chip that has a larger screen. Don't much care about cost at this stage of the game. My eyes are 126 years old (63 years each eye) and I have to put on my reading glasses to see some of the finer details.

I don't think there are any handhelds that have larger screens but Lowrance does make stand alone units that have 5 inch diagonal screens.

I'm not sure how well these work, but I have seen a magnafying lense that you can buy for I-Finder/H2O type units. It looks like it attaches to the ram that holds the unit (if you have one) and magnifies the image. It might be something to look into? It might not be worth it either, who knows. Just a thought.

No Lowrance handheld units that have a larger screen, you will have to move into Globalmap series.. You can make these units portable as well with a little work, and with the TFT screens you can even use them in colder temps, say for ice fishing. The 3500C is a 5 inch screened unit, that will run you $600.00 or so for the unit and external antenna. Or you can opt for the internal antenna type, the 3600C. This will eleviate having to buy the additional external antenna. But as of now, I am unsure if the problem of having a hard time to lock onto a signal with these types of units have been fixed.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
