Depth Finder


fish-4-fun

Question

Does anyone know anything about the hummingbird 3d depth finder? I think they look like they would be the way to go if you really want to see what the bottom looks like.

I was looking at the 947, it is grayscale no gps, cost is 500 the one with color is like 1700, I can't afford to spend that kinda money on a depth finder, but I would really like the gps mapping one. Do you know if eagle depth finders are worth a (Contact US Regarding This Word) or not, they are pretty reasonable for a color sonar plus mapping gps.

Fish-4-fun.....the eagle graphs are alright for the money.The lowrance lms 480 is a monochrome graph that has mapping its about 500 bills .Good resolution 480by480 and more options than youll probably need.That would be my pick for the money

R.Wiggum is more or less correct lowrance and eagle are the same company.There is a pretty big difference in the color units they offer.I went over this with a gentleman last year at the sports show.If its a color graph your looking at go to thornes or somewhere else,they should be able to explain the differences between lowrance and eagle units.

3-D has been around a long time.

The new technology (last year) is "side imaging". Very cool. I think Humminbird has it patented.???

I was thinking about the lowrance 337c. I think that was 700 but it is color has gps and has dual transducers. But I still think the 3d would be awesome, especially if you want to find good strucure, otherwise in 2d how do you really know what kind of structure you are on.
