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.

      Tomorrows weather is looking nice, after that not so much.  The big boat is still in winter storage and BC's boat is getting a new transom.  So it might be put the dock in and work on the transom kinda weekend.

      So, opener is only two weeks away.  Who's going to make the trip to Cass and Kitchi?  And the big question, with this nice spring weather pattern we are experiencing.  Is it going to finally be a nice opener?
