Difference between the LMS332 and the 330?

Question

waskawood

Can anyone tell me what is better about the LMS-332c over the LMS-330c? I can buy a new 330 for a hundred bucks cheaper than a new 332. I don't want to be frugal if the newer version is that much better. Thanks for any help.

A bigger display...That is it. 332 Has a 480 display and the 330 has the 320 display. I have the 330-LMS and it is a great unit. Now all I need to do is get the Lakemaster MMC chip and it will be ready for open water season this year.

Take care!

Waskawood, I bought the 330 last year and it works great. The 332 has more pixels so the resolution is greater but the 330 is very clear and easy to see with my 53yr old eyes,even in bright sunlight. I'd get the 330 and spend the extra 100 on a lake maps chip.The screen size is the same in both units. Good Luck DrJ.

The screen on the 332 is bigger than on the 330. Lowrance's specs say that both are 5 inch screens, but if you look at them side-by-side in a store you will see that the 332 is clearly a larger screen. Not a lot larger, but definately larger.

And as the others have mentioned, the 332 has a higher pixel count and therefore better resolution.

I bought the 332 this year. I figured with a sonar/gps combo unit I wanted the bigger screen. I wanted the higher resolution to get the most out of the mapping features, and I use my sonar constantly to pick apart the bottom or look for suspended bait and fish so I wanted the higher resolution for that too. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the 330, I'm just saying that for me the 332 was a better way to go. Good luck with your choice.

Also the 332c has a TFT screen which is a plus for colder weather, it wont freeze up, same screen as the x67c ice machine unit./

M-Muskie- Lake chip??

If you are talking about the LakeMaster Chips- then yes! Would you rather try to mess with a map and figure out a general spot or would you like to be looking at your Map screen and see (as you are crusin' along the water) 25ft, 24ft, 23ft,....19ft BINGO I found the flat cool.gif Easy as 1-2-3!

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
