New RT-9 Marcum is here!

4 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

   I was just out on Marcum's page. It looks like the RT-9 is here. This thing looks awesome! I love the fact of mapping, sonar & a 9" screen together. I wonder how long the battery life is on this unit? You have an internal battery plus a 12 volt battery too.

Slick looking unit but that price tag is no joke. 

Rt9 unit $1200 no transducer
Ice ducer $350
Ice pack $150
Camera module $550

Has some pretty nice technology but honestly isn't anything too new to fishing (maybe just ice fishing).  Don't get me wrong, i'm a diehard Marcum guy (LX7, LX5, and two cameras) but this technology has been out there for a while and Marcum was just the first one to mass market it towards ice fishing.  If I was to drop this kinda coin I would just rather get a Lawrance HDS unit and use it year round on hard and soft water.

I'll stick to my lx7 (possibly upgrade it to lx9) and use the $10 navionics app on my phone.

Sweet baby Jesus.  I'd quit ice fishing before I spent over $2k on a flasher/camera/GPS.

Agreed! :crazy:
