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.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
