Looking at new locator this year....Less expensive side please.

1. Color

2. gps WITH LAKEMASTER CHIP I HAVE

3. 480 x 480 would be enough

4. Always fishing 30' or less depth

5. Not a real serious every weekend thing

I have always had Eagles with never any problems, is the lowrance that much better???

Lowrance typically gives you more power (not needed on the shallow inland waters we fish around here) and a few more features than Eagle. But other than that they are basically identical units and you should get just about the same performance with an Eagle that you would with a Lowrance.

From what you say you're looking for, I think an Eagle would be an excellent choice. Good luck.

I dont know what less is but the 520c I purchased last year works pretty nice and will accepts both chips. I believe it ran approx. 600.00

This unit can pretty much do everything you will be looking for in a sonar/gps unit.

From what I have seen and learned about these two units is that Lowrance has a way better screen then Eagle. Lowrance makes eagles so they aren’t going to make it better then a Lowrance. The 520c or the 522c igps would be the units that would fit you perfect. Both are 5” color screens, both have 2400 watts which is good to about 800 feet… I own one and LOVE IT!!! cool.gif

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
