Which 7" color sonar/plotter?


ScottND

Question

I want to buy a new 7" color sonar/plotter.

Does the recording type record GPS data and sonar together?

If not then I just want the sonar. Which one?

Funny Steve, I am looking to pick a 25 up at the boat show also. Maybe we should go together and put our heads together for a better price form the MG booth.

Perfect timing again boys! I was just going to post a question regarding the prices I've seen for globalmap 6500's on an online auction site. Does anyone know if Lowrance is coming out with something radically new? I have to imagine that there must be some reason that dealers are getting rid of their old stock because I can pick one up for around $820. I paid almost that much for each lcx I own! The globalmaps used to be around 1200-1500 at the start of last years fishing season. I already have a lcx-18c on the bow and lcx-20c at the tiller, and just want a bigger screen to serve as a mapping unit with my chip.

Uh-O, I think I'm gonna need a bigger alternator blush.gif

$1249 with dual freq transducer and GPS module, hoping to get it to $1100. ND if you can get the whole package for that then I would jump on it.

No problem. Cheffery it may be a July Birthday present for me. I dont have a Grand plus to toss out now. The better half would be putting a matress in the garage if I did it now. blush.gif

Ill sell my other 2 graphs and see what I come up with. Ill keep the 15 for the bow.

Be careful on ebay with some of those items. There are high priced sonar units with MSRP over $2,000 and the ad says to email a person and purchase it directly for $500. These are 24 hour auctions too. smirk.gif

Turns out they reply via email saying send $500 via Western Union and once payment is received the product will be shipped from Europe.

That has scam written all over it...once you send via Western Union, you just kissed all that money good bye.

It also appears these scammers are hijacking ebay users accounts somehow. Sonar units are listed for sale in women's apparrel - purse sections of ebay....

Scammers need to go. mad.gif

Hey Steve/Cheffrey,

Boatshow price will be 1099 for the 25c, was at MG over lunch and they were moving everything out for the next 3-4 weeks of shows. The premium chip will be 129 they said.

Ya thats as cheap as I have seen it anywhere. What does everyone have to say about the new 334c with the gps antena built into it? May be worth a look as well.

ChuckN I agree, I took a look at what this guy was offering with a great feedback rating and noted there is no way this oculd be true with listing high expense items at a minimum cost with limited past sales. The guy was listing 3 items a minute for all of his items to end in about a hours times.

Ohoh...here comes the H....... word.

After looking at Cabelas today and knowing Minn Kota now owns Hummingbird I had to look. (the word is they also have Bottom Line and Cannon downriggers shocked.gif)

I think I'm going to go with a Hummingbird sonar and a lowrance plotter so I can run Lakemaster cards. smirk.gif

You can run Lakemaster in your Lowrances too just not the new Navionics in the older ones.

I'm glad you mentioned the whole "email me now for a price" scam that has been going on recently. Yes, they've been hijacking accounts. I've been emailing the owners of the accounts that get hijacked and letting them know that someone has their password. A few people have written back to me, one guy said his account was stolen after he responded to one of those "your account has to be updated" emails. The scammers put the auctions in other catagories to hide them from the owner and from ebay. One guy did his part by bidding on the auctions with the username: THIS_IS_A_SCAM_LOOK_AT_THE_CATAGORY. cool.gif The scammers just switched to private auctions so the bidders names don't show up. I don't worry about using ebay when I use a credit card, not my check card mind you. And I will NEVER settle a transaction off of ebay- no matter how good the deal is. I wish ebay did a better job of policing their store. I've tried writing to them, but you just get an automated response. mad.gif Still, some of the deals I've found there have been awesome. You just have to be careful.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
