lowrance endura reviews

Recommended Posts

Talked with the guy at the Big C in Rogers a few weeks ago - one whose opinion I value a great deal - and he said he heard so many complaints about those units that he would cringe every time he made a sale of one of them. I am personally inclined to go with the Garmin Oregon 450 or 450t to replace my (more than) occasionally unreliable Lowrance ExpeditionC, but I'm guessing that's more $$, eh?

He also hinted at an H2Oc "comeback" (??) ... I don't give that very good odds, but you heard it here first!

i had one, bought in february this year, Happy to get rid of it this past september. Screen is to small and can't read is without the backlight on. Sometimes took a long time to get a lock. nice that it was color and touchscreen but for the hassle with the software updates, unable to use the lakemaster until summer, poor customer service from lowrance on past products, I would go with a garmin.

I had the Out&Back for less than a year and it failed to the point that Lowrance replaced it free of charge. I've never opened the box on the new one and I'll give anyone a half price deal on it.

I have to hand it to Lowrance, they replaced it in no time at all, no questions asked, so their customer service isn't near as bad as some people make them out to be. (At least in my case, it wasn't)

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
