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.

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.
