Lowrance x-70/ gps

3 posts in this topic

I think I've talked myself into needing a new GPS for my boat but can't decide if I need to spend the extra cash to upgrade my X-70 as well. I've used this unit with zero troubles for a lot of years but the new color units look pretty sweet! Cost is definitely an issue since I'll be getting one of the lakemap chips as well. Any thoughts guys?

I am looking at going with the 7-inch color/gps. I had the 332i last year and that boy had a tone of troubles. The new 560 series 5" is supposed to be good and has fixed all of the internal GPS questions -- but it is hard to tell.

The seven incher is nice but for $350 bucks more do I really need it ........?

Thanks Hitman. I've been looking at a carry-over Lowrance 3600c for a pretty good price. Do you know anything about it? I guess if there is reliabiity issues with some of the older models I'd rather just spend the extra coins. It is for a good cause!

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
