Does it have GPS?? They sell for $350 with GPS on ebay. It was Lowrance's top of the line unit that came out in 94 I believe. It was replaced with the X-15MT in 2000 I think. Great units, I still use mine as a GPS unit.

Oh, and yes they are out dated. Lowrance won't even work on them anymore. If it works and is cheap, get it. If it doesn't work and is REAL cheap and you are going to buy a new Lowrance, buy and call Lowrance they will exchange it for a coupon. Not much off, but better than paying full price.

Yes it has GPS, can it take a mapping chip (Navionics)?

Dude was aking $300 I din't realize it was that old.

Will Lowrance give you a credit on any old unit? I have an older flasher from the early 90's...credit? If so, what are we talking? $10, $20, ???

No way will the 350A take chips. I have two of them on my boat and they are old, I don't know what year...10 years maybe? They are great sonars, great plotters, but the GPS feature is so complicated to work I installed my handheld in the boat to keep waypoints and navigation.

Next year I am upgrading to a new sonar and keeping one 350 on the bow and the other as a back up since you cannot get them repaired.

I believe Lowrance allows a credit towards some of their top quality graphs over $1,000 if you trade the 350 in. I believe it only applies to that model from what I heard.

If you want a chip reading Lowrance, buy new, spend a little more money and get something up-to-date (like the 332C). BTW, beware of the X-15 deals on ebay and such. Those can be outdated and they will not read the premium Navionic chips. They will read other chips, but there are some issues with the some chips. The X-17, X-19, X-20 etc.. are all great units and will accept all chips.

Hemlock: I also own a 350A and love it, but I have never used anything else either. Three years ago I had a problem with the 350A and Lowrance repaired it and also updated it to the latest engineering change to the unit. They did tell me that within a few months they would not be repairing them anymore and would give me a deal on a 332C. if you can get the unit at a decent price it would be worth the money. $175.00 max. Good Luck.

If the GPS antenna is rectangular, it's at least 8 years old. If the antenna is round, it's between 5 and 8 years old. The rectangular one is a five channel and the round one is the twelve channel reciever.

The sonars today blow the 350A out of the water though. I ran my X-15 next to the 350A, and was amazed at what the X-15 picked up that the 350A didn't register. Now the X-15 is almost outdated. For $300 you would be better off looking at something else.

so since my antena is rectangular which means it is a 5 channel, I should junk it then? if so, let me know and out it goes. the boat only came with the antena and I have a diffferent locator now

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
