Automotive Gps Units

5 posts in this topic

I'm looking at purchasing a Gps for my car. Does anyone have any info on the good units and the not so good units? The ones I was looking at was the Lowrance Iway 500c and the Garmin Street pilot 2720. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

We have been running the Garmin 2610s and 2620 in our trucks for the last 3 years and now I don't know what I would do without them.

Updating maps is simple and hassle free, the unit prompts you every 6 months to update the software which is free from the Garmin website.

I love the availabilty to avoid certian areas when we have our big trailers on, dirt roads, u turns ect.

Our units allow you to enter multiple addresses and then creates a route to hit each one the fastest. We have had three units for 3 years and have had only minor problems. (Calibrations, remote). All in all I am very happy with the Street pilot, I can't even imagine the features the new ones have.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
