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!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
