Lowrance IFinder H2O C VS. IFinder Hunt C


asdfdrew

Question

I need to pick up a handheld GPS and I can't tell the difference between the two except for price. Anyone out there got an opinion either way? Primary use will be for fishing and hiking/camping.

The Hunt C has more features than the H2O C, it's more like the Expedition than H2O C ..... electronic compass, scout mode, mp3 player, etc. You can check them out HERE to see the differences, as well as see the new models that are due out in May. Quick word of warning though, right now there aren't any Navionics or LakeMaster cards in microSD format that will work in the new units.

Sounds good, that page is exactly what I was looking for with a comparison of different brands/models. Sounds like I'm going to be waiting until May for the new models, thanks again!

Why would they build a GPS unit that did not have a compatable maping card? That does not seem to make any scents to me.

I think until I knew for sure they were making a card, I would be getting the current units as uposed to the newer yet to be released one.

I might have been misinformed but an employee at a big box store told the new HDS fish finders were the same way?

You were misinformed, the HDS units take the standard size SD cards that LakeMaster and Navionics have out there now.

As for the new Endura handheld GPS with microSD card, everyone is assuming the LakeMaster and Nav cards will be available in microSD format in the near future - nothing official on that yet, but that's what the buzz is. And microSD cards come with an adapter that lets you use them in full size units too. It's a pretty slick setup, I have a microSD card and adapter in my music phone and it works great.

Yes there's no real difference between the SD and MicroSD cards except for the size. Like you said I can't imagine that LakeMaster and the other companies wouldn't put out a MicroSD card when new devices are being built with MicroSD slots. I've copied other personal SD and MicroSD cards, (pics, video game save files, etc) do you think it would be possible to copy your old SD LakeMaster card onto a MicroSD card for the new device?

No. Non. Nicht. Nyet.

I agree. It would be an illegal copy if you could make one, and they have very good protection against it in their code.

Im pretty sure I saw on Lakemasters website that they have microSD chips.

EDIT* checked again they do have them listed under the garmin info. Dont see why the chip wouldnt work in any other unit...

Garmin cards only work in Garmin units. Lowrance cards only work in Lowrance units. The cards are proprietary to the company that puts them out. Garmin and Lowrance buy a license to put LakeMaster data on cards that will work in their units.

Didnt realise that. Figured it would be like navionics where the same chip can be used in units from different companies.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
