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.

Thanks for your sharing your experience. I'm not surprised to get different opinions. I'll look into all that you have mentioned.

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.

    • Hillary and DWS didn't commit any crimes as difficult as that is to believe. Sketchy politics certainly, but what happens within a political party has no legal ramifications. The FBI already cleared Clinton of wrongdoing with regards to the email.   Flynn and other members of Trump's team are likely in violation of the Logan Act.
    • Well, if that happens then let the chips fall but do you think they will be arresting Hillary and DWS at the same time? If so it would be a good start.
    • I would wager the FBI arresting members of Trump's team, likely starting with Michael Flynn. Flynn made 5 phone calls to a Russian Ambassador on the day Obama imposed sanctions. Trump's team defended the 5 calls by stating Flynn was just wishing him Merry Christmas, which is odd because it was December 29th.   http://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-eyes-michael-flynns-links-to-russia-1485134942    
    • Nick, so what are the top schemes the left plans to conjure up for impeachment?
    • Go Pats. They need one for the thumb.
    • And I am sure it will be a waste of server space You do understand that you just defined the meaning of the word conjecture don't you?     But there is conjecture so you have that  The only thing odd is that you are falling for the same type of fake news the Birthers fell for during the Obama years. Don't you understand you are quickly becoming the JV of libertopia?    Well, If you feel compelled then go ahead and forward your research to the proper authorities so they have a better chance at putting together the evidence to prosecute him because apparently without your insight they are not able to connect the proverbial dots. 
    • The dnc had russian propaganda that the russians hacked and released? Guess they provided the transparency the left is always so concerned about.
    • It's just a compilation of sources done on a public google drive. Pasting makes it searchable on this site.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzLcl2gcA6O_SWN3WWM4WTlMZ2M/view
