Lowrance Global Map

Question

  • 0

Simple question, should I get the 4000 with the 7" screen or save $300 and get the 4800 with a 5 inch screen. Either way I'm not getting color. Thanks. Anyone who has one with a 5 inch screen let me know if is too small, I wouldn't think so but I don't want buyers remorse if I go with the 5 incher.

I think with the new TFT displays comming out, guys who used to complain about color finders will change their minds pretty quickly.

I just bought the 4000M myself. I was in the same boat. Deciding on a color or black and white. I talked to thorne bros and they think the 4000m is the better model. Unless you get the new color ones. I am extremely happy with the 7 inch 4000m. I think you will be to if you go that way.
thanks

I've used the 5, and think the 7 would be better. Reason, easier to see detail at a distance. I know you said you didn't want it, but, I would highly recommend Color over mono. Display is fablous day or night, bright sun or clouds. you might consider the 5"color, maximizing the $$.

Leechlake,

I'm not saying the grayscale is bad, Just that with the newer softwares there can be more info and detail on the screen and that's when I see the color as an advantage. If you have many different symbols and item to distinguish, the color helped me. Don't remember the model (My buddy loaned it to me in July - Lowrance color 7") and we uploaded highway data and used the gps on the drive to New Orleans, and then gps and sonar screen fishing in the coastal waters.

I just think that very soon you'll be able to load for example a "lakemaster" type contour map and between the lines, waypoints symbols etc, the greater variety of colors will help seperate the info. Only so many variations of gray. I'm reccommend it most onl what you might be able to do with it next year kind mindset. I have since bought a Magellan Meridian color handheld gps and that is WAY easier to read than my Low. Golabmap100 is. Probably more important on a gps than a straight sonar, but not sure if you are looking at the straight sonar or the dual sonar/gps unit.

Thanks for the replies, I bought a Global Map 5000c last night, color. Cabelas was sold out for the season already so I bought it at my favorite sporting goods store in northern Minnesota on line. They do have the lakemaster maps available now, by the way. You just buy the chip, I was told to wait to buy it though, because the map I want is going to be improved soon, rumor has it. Rumor... not necessarily fact. Thanks again.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.

      e-commerce applications always do wonders for any business so your idea is very good, someone here in this forum should be able to recommend you some good company that can help you develop the application, remember to ask them to review the application before launching it to the market, so that it does not come out with errors, if it has errors you will lose many users, good luck with your business!

      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
