Lowrance GPS Questions

2 posts in this topic

I just purchased a Lowrance 334c gps/sonar which I plan to mount at the steering console. However, I do most of my fishing from the bow of the boat so I am thinking about buying another cheaper gps for the front of the boat. I already have a color sonar up front but would like to be able to mark waypoints, etc. I do not know whether to buy a handheld unit (H2O) that I could then use for ice fishing or just a monochrome Lowrance gps (ie Lowrance 4800). Also, would there be any reason to link the two gps systems? I have the 2007 LakeMaster chip to use with my gps. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I see where u stand... Here where ill start.. i think i kinda depends on how much you want to spend??? I KNOW you would be happy with a H20 they are SWEEEETT. But its all depends on what you really want to do.

The reason why you would link(network) the two units is so you share the waypoints. Meaning, if you make a waypoint on the 334 on your console it would also show up on the GPS in the front

      1-2" in most lakes under 100 acres with moderate depth in the north metro. Smaller lakes likely have more.    Fingers crossed the snow misses us

      Went out with my poker this morning and checked ice at Johanna. The entire lake is finally locked up and there is about an inch of ice at the end of the dock. Hopefully the snow misses us this morning and we start to build some quality ice.

      I checked numerous Aitken area lakes yesterday, 9th. The only lake where I saw any open water remaining was Cedar south of Aitken.  Ripple, Dam, Clear, Hanging Kettle, Sissabagama, Anne, Rabbit, all locked up. 2" in most places, but after last night I'm sure it added more. I would guess in the next couple days there will be walk-out traffic. There were 6 porty's on  Shakopee yesterday, and although I did not check the ice, I'd assume there is decent ice there. There were houses out there already Wed.   Be safe, use caution and common sense, and do lots of checking.

      Ice Report: Pearl Lake 4 1/2 inches on shore line. 5 inches out a couple hundred feet. 1 guy out fishing way out there.  Grand Lake 2 inches about 10 ft out from public access.

      Well from what I saw yesterday I could wet a line thru the ice today I think knot. im going to give it a week for myself personaly. but on my way to work at 3pm yesterday I looked over at the lake I mentioned was iced over since Wed. and seen two groups of 2 out in the middle of the lake ice shelters and all and 2 of them weren't that far from the aerator out there.  I just hope everyone had a good and safe day out there and no one found anything out the hard way. At best that lake caped off Tuesday night. But I predict by next weekend there will be many places to ice fish and some evan before.  Three hard strikes with the Spud Bar followed by the foot
