Buying a new GPS

3 posts in this topic

I am looking at purchasing a new GPS unit for my boat and was wondering which features were most important to other FM members. I am looking for a stand alone unit, most likely a Lowrance Globalmap. Color vs mono, internal vs external antenna. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

Lowrance is nice for for ability to take map chips and the ability to easily network with other units. Eagle makes great units too that are a little cheaper than Lowrance, no network options though.

I'd say go color for sure, and I prefer external mount antennas. And I'd take a higher pixel count (better resolution) over a larger screen any day.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
