Sonar/GPS recommendations?

4 posts in this topic

Time to upgrade my open water electronics. I'm looking to buy a new sonar/GPS unit for my boat. Budget is between $500 and $1000.

What are some features that I should consider and what experience do others have with brands? I've got a gift certificate for Cabelas so it will have to be available there.

I too would be interested in recommendations. My budget is a bit lower tho, with about 600 being tops.

I know Reeds had the Lowrance 334c on sale for $500 that's a sonar/gps combo with built in antenna it's color also. Hanson just bought one and he likes it.

Or you could the New 500 "520/522" series is a good unit but you will be paying a little more around $650 for the external or internal antenna models.

All units use the latest Map Chips available.

fisher king with your budget you should be able to upgrade to a bigger screen if you want maybe find a 25c.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
