What Electronics

9 posts in this topic

I have a Lund Rebel 1650 tiller and have had only a simple depth finder, which is now shot. What brand/model electronics would you suggest? I plan to mount it near the stern.

I have always had good luck with Eagle/Lowrance. They have a great line of products and services. For a GPS/Fish finder combo, Lowrance has a new M56m S/Map, that runs for about $299. If your looking for just a fishfinder, the Lowrance X47EX Wide Screen has the best bang for the buck right now at $149. Hope this helps a bit.

I would highly recommend any Lowrance product. Have run several different units over the years and have had no disappointments. Which model you buy depends on how much $ you want to spend, regardless, you won't be disappointed.

I got the LMS-320 by lowrance last year. It has both gps and sonar and you can use both in split screen.
The reason I got this unit was that I could use the lakemaster chip for Mille Lacs and now you have ProMap chips for 3 foot depth increments for many lakes that are available. If they have a map available for the lakes you regularly fish I would consider this unit which is about $600 or less.

If you still want to stay with a fairly simple set up and not get into the high buck stuff, take a look at the Eagle Fishmark 320. 320 pixels for good clarity and only runs about $189.00

I would second the fishmark 320, I bought one last year and it is awesome. You can get them for around 160 bucks right now.

My PERSONAL opinion, I wouldn't use Lowrance. I wont go into the details; but take a look at Raymarine (Raytheon) products. They are technolically ahead of the competition in my opinion with a very good heads up service dept.
