Hummingbird Matrix 67 Combo

4 posts in this topic

I saw one for sale at a local sporting goods store for $299 and was considering buying it to test it out. Does anyone have any experience with one of these units? Just wondering if its worth the money or not.

I havnt used one but they cant be to bad if you looking for a cheaper gps/locator combo. Plus buy it before the first of july and get a free Navionics gold chip by mail. Another good cheaper combo unit thats going for $399 is the lowrance LMS 480.

I have the humminbird 383 and I like it, does everything I need except put the fish in the boat. I looked at the Matrix 67, but was told they were discontinuing that line. I like the color of the 383 as opposed the black and white.

The 383 does not have gps or does it? Also I believe the screen is slightly smaller. The 383 and matrix 67 are the same price right now at $300.

      Yes the Navonics phone app is as accurate as more expensive ones and you don't need to spend the extra $$ on another unit!  The app costs under $10!!

      Hopefully things will start to happen soon.  The next 15 days of overnight lows are starting to stay below freezing. Maybe a few test holes will have to happen for me next week!!

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Looks like we might have walkable ice in 2 weeks
