GPS electronics

Question

Alright guys, I need some expert advice. I am looking to buy a depthfinder that comes with GPS. I dont want to spend more than $600 and have been looking at the Lowrance LMS-320. Does anyone have any experience with this model or does anyone have any suggestions for other depth finders. It would help if the model was fairly easy to use. Thanks.

I have the Lowrance LMS-240....last years model. I'm really pleased with it. It has been right on when using the GPS and has plenty of power for the sonar. LakeMaster just released the 1ft contours and the 3 ft contours maps for it. Should be a nice addition.

All and all a good unit.

Just my .02 but if it were me, I would buy a good graph and buy a decent handheld GPS seperate. The price is about the same or usually cheaper and when you aren't on the lake you can be using the GPS in the vehicle or while you are hunting, etc.

I am sure there are lots of people who would disagree but just my viewpoint.

Never have used an LMS-320 so I can't give you info on that one. But Eagle has a new unit out called the Fish Elite 320. It is a 320x320 pixel display with 10 levels of grayscale and 1500 watts ptp power. It comes with GPS and only runs about $450. Is just like the other ones and it takes the little mem cards. Take a look at it. It looks cool.

Good Luck smile.gif

I would have to agree with kirsch, It's kind of hard to take your fishfinder to your deer stand, if that's what you're into like me. Even if you're not, there are alot of other good uses for a handheld GPS, ice fishing, road navigation, survey, etc. I know some of the handheld units are capable of receiving some of the same lake map info as the fishfinders, so you may not even lose this feature. Give this option some serious thought. My .02.

Well have not seen a post of what i have so will share that. Not to say that it is the best. I have a good graph and a seperate large gps unit. Fishing the big waters it is important to have a big screen with easy controls. I have talked to some people with separate hand held models mounted in the boat, but they say it is difficult on their models to use them in rougher waters. If a better graph comes along, you can sell just the graph and keep the gps unit, or vice-versa. I would imagine that the combo units work great. My advice would be to go to a store and put whatever it is that you plan to use the same distance away as theywould be in the boat and see how the controls work and screen size and see what your happiest with. Good luck!

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend

      To create such an application, developers specializing in investment applications for banks and other financial services are needed. At https://mangosoft.tech/industry/investment-software-development/ you can order the creation of investment applications from scratch or find ready-made solutions.

      great app idea never heard of commercial apps before. it seems to me that the fastest way to find developers on any exchanges, that is, you need to place your ad and then you will be offered all possible options

      It seems to me that this is excellent advice, but one option is not enough, I think. You need to look at a few and decide which one is best, it all depends entirely on the customer.

      the best option is to entrust such work to other specialists, but you will have to pay a lot of money for this, but still I think it's worth it to get a quality product that you will have to work with for a very long time, if not all your life

      Tips for Reducing the Stress of Writing High School Papers  
    • leoholmes
      High school is a pivotal time in every student's life. The challenges of this period range from the courses themselves to the social pressures that come from interacting with peers. One of the main challenges high school students face is writing papers. The reason for this is that writing is a skill that develops over time, and many high school students have never had to produce a paper before. High school students need to write papers for many different classes. These papers may be research papers or essays. These different types of papers all require different skills for help write my paper. However, high school students may struggle with all of them. This is because they aren't used to producing writing on a regular basis.
