320x240 vs 480x480 color

8 posts in this topic

Is there much difference as far as screen definition goes for the 320x240 versus the 480x480 in the color depth finders? I have a LMS-334 and am considering getting another depth finder for the bow but would like to get something a bit cheaper and still stay in color.

Screen definition depends on pixels per square inch. If the 320x240 and the 480x480 have the same screen size, then the definition will be better on the 480x480.

If the pixels are the same size the screen will be rectangular with 320x240 and square with 480x480. Example, 2.4"x3.2" vs 4.8"x4.8".

if you fish alot and will be using the locator alot then i would go with the more pixel unit. You will be really glad you it, it give you a more defind look and will really bring out the detail alot better. my .02

As others posted, the higher the pixels the better the resolution (definition). Go with the highest pixel count in color you can afford.

I jumped from a 320 to a 640 last year for my bow unit. Wow. I just equaled it with my console unit because of how impressed I am with the 640 vertical pixels.

Reeds have a sale and closeout on the 334. At the Sportsman show now going on in MPLS, they were $450 out the door, that included sales tax. I picked one up and I'm sure they would still honor that if you called them by Monday. It seem like a great unit for that money, now have to find the time to learn how to use it.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
