GPS information

6 posts in this topic

I'm planning on buying new GPS but have little knowledge of them . What is a good brand and what price range do they run in . I see now when fishing URL that they are inportant as a fish locator . I think my only use would be for fishing . Any info would be appreciated . Thanks Brad

Are you looking for a handheld model or a dash mount type?

I have a garmin emap that I use for fishing as well as on the road. If I was to do it again I think I would get a larger dash mount. The hand helds are a little hard to see.

I was thinking about a hand held model . Now I question that with the information on the dash mount . I'll check out the pro's and con's on both . I like the idea of being able to see the screen better . Thanks Brad !!!

Brad sr; A hand held GPS is very nice to have if you ice fish, we mark our spots in the summer and set up on them in the winter.

I went with the Garmin Etrex a couple years ago and have been very happy with it. About 110 bucks.You can check out the Garmin web site for the specifics on the units they have. But the biggest reason for the price difference between the etrex and the higher dollar models is the mapping software.Not needed for fishing or marking way points. The screen is smaller, yes but still very functional.It also interfaces with your pc so you can get the updates from garmin free and keep your software current. I have the Lake master software and it works well with that.
