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.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.

      They eat little bitty stuff.   But them and whitefish should be catchable in summer.  They are eating after all.
