Lowrance H2O Carrying Case?

Question

Coach Dog

I am looking at purchasing an H2OC. But what I do not see available is a carrying case. Is there such a thing for these, and if not, what does everyone use? I see Garmin and Magellan offer cases, but does Lowrance? I really want to protect my investment, so this is important for me.

Also, am I buying the right unit? It seams like the most popular. I want to use it for fishing primarily so I plan on adding the map chip.

Thanks, Coach Dog

Give thorne brothers a call. They will most likely have the H20 and the case in stock. They also have a good selection of RAM mounts and accessories that you may be interested in as well for your H2O. Which reminds me I need to pick up a suction cup window mount for my H2O

Here's the number 763-572-3782.

The H2O will come highly recc. by many on this site. I have the greyscale version and rarely head out with out it. One of the few complaints is that the older color models went through batteries fairly quickly. A friend of mine just purchase a color version not to long ago and said he is getting around 8 hours of use with the settings he is using?

Coach-

You are buying the right unit. The H2O C is a great unit and is tough to beat! I along with a lot of other people here use and love the color screen. Adding the navionics or lakemaster chips is a breeze and will put you on some good structure. Your case is available from Lowrance. It has a clear face to see the screen and push all the buttons. One bad thing with this case. You can't use it and the 12 volt adapter at the same time as there is no hole in the bottom for it. Go ahead and pull the trigger; you won't be disappointed.

I love mine - on the water and on the road. I have the LakeMaster MN chip and the detail is amazing. It will even give you an impressive list of restaurants, lodging, services available at interstate exits, etc. as well.

Recently visited Rochester for the first time and the unit told me what restuarants, services, grocery stores, movie theaters, etc. were near my hotel.

I have not seen this in the manual but I was fooling around with it the other day and found that if you press "exit" (I think - will have to check the key when I get home)repeatedly the unit will display a speedometer that covers the entire screen.

Yes, exit three times. Then, you can use the "Z in" and "Z out" keys to adjust the scale of the speedo.

I love my H2OC. Just came back from a cold W/E at LOW, and it worked flawlessly with the lakemaster chip. As far as cases, GPS outfitters makes the best case I have seen. gpscase.jpg

It runs about $15, and dont worry about the out of stock on the pic, I'm sure places will have them. I got mine at Reeds, but I think Cabelas and Gander have them also.

I was in a hurry so just went into Best Buy with the H2O and matched it with a camera case (LowePro)...looks just like the picture above but has a seperate pouch outside that perfectly carries four extra batteries, about $10.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
