GPS Question


Shallow Runner

Question

Which GPS would you recommend for a person who fishes the same lake (most of the time), 16000 acres, has a lake map with coordinates and may want to fish a few others. I am open to mapping, however do I need all the bells and whistles. Which one would give me, maybe a bell and a not to noisy whistle

I am a big fan of Garmin hand helds. I have the IIIplus and my brother has the V model. He has all the bells and whistles that you don't need. My boat has a Lowrance GPS/graph but I still use my Garmin because it is easier to program. My dad has a Magellan and nobody can figure that sucker out....

I also have a Garmin, mine is a 12 XL. Very easy to use very accurate and reliable. I have had it for about 5 years now.I am not saying it is the best, but I have never been unhappy with it or felt I needed to up-grade.

I hve the Garmin 76S. U can get the maps for the rivers and lakes for your area and download them to the hand held. I find the 76S very easy to use and has more than enough space (24).

Garmin all the way. Map76S is great in the air, on the road, in the woods, or on the water. I've used the 12, 12XL, III+ quite a bit and a few others not as much. All are user friendly. Garmin has introduced several new models that I am unfamiliar with. I'm sure they all live up to the Garmin reputation.

You just have to decide what you need in a GPS and go from there.

Garmin 76!!!! Its user friendly, and able to pick up what is called WAAS satellites. Most of the time its within 15'-25'. It does have all the bells and whistles, but you will only need and use only 5% of the features. It is great on batteries, but you do need to keep it in a pocket on the inside of your coat when its cold out.

Have Fun!

I have the Garmin 176C. I have it mounted to the handlebars of my ATV and plugged into the ATV battery. During the cold snap I left it on all day in 0 degree weather. When I left for home after 7 PM that evening it was working perfectly. The 176C is the color display and the 176 is b&w at a lesser cost.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/

      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
