Best Features of the Lowrance H2Oc

Question

tdb

I've recently bought a Lowrance H2Oc and was wondering what features people have found most valuable? I plan to use it mostly for fishing and have the Lakemaster chip. Also, how accurate are the lake contours? Am I right on the spot or within x # of feet?

I like the 'Find' feature the best. I have the LakeMaster chip in mine, and it has a ton of info on it (with phone numbers).

Wherever I'm at I use it to find what I want...It might be an address, a Wal-mart, or 3-mile flat on Mill Lacs.

Anyone else?

I like the speedometer grin.gif

The find is REAL NICE. I also have the LakeMaster map and can't really complain. It's also nice that you can customize the details that display on your map, for example, I want to see the trip distance and speed without going to a different page. This may be a feature on other units but I find it very helpful.

Love mine for the reasons above and I just returned from Table Rock in MO and had occasion to save trails from each day and the ability to change trail colors was awesome - helped in sorting out all the trips so made it easier to find our way back home - we did make a 45 min run and it would have been much tougher to sort out the return path if all trails were the same color.

Also love the ability to measure a feature on the Lakemaster map - if I am looking over a lake and see an underwater hump or a point I can use the Find Distance feature to measure its size. Tough to tell scale without it - could be the size of a football field or a car....

As for accuracy, it will depend on how many satellites it locks into - more is better.

maybe not the best feature; I bought a video screen cover made by belkin for the Ipod Video's. One package has enough cover for 2 or 3 ifinder screens. I am very glad I did this, no scratches on the screen ever, just may have to replace screen covers. THere is no extrea glare and visibility is still great.

Daze how do you measure the size of a hump? Do you have to be next to it?

youngie, good idea with the screen protector.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?
