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.

    • No dave.   Quite sure i'm aware of the equipment I was born with..   And how to use it..
    • Enter Governor smith..   Non-elected by design.   She couldn't win an election for dog catcher, let alone Governor..   Did anyone really believe sickly mark dayton could/would finish his term ??    
    • Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises. Leaders from each of the major trade unions applauded the withdrawal from TPP. Leaders representing Teamsters, Laborers', Sheet metal workers',  Carpenters, Plumbers, Pipefitters, Welders and others. The union meeting also included several local union officials. Labor chiefs described their meeting with D.T. as "incredible".. A great step towards revitalizing the U.S building trades and manufacturing economy.   (These are unions that endorsed hillary....)   Trump also told labor union leaders that he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement "at the appropriate time.

    • Brit Hume is now a "Trump supporter" ??     Doh-Kay...    
    • Or..... The Russians.
    • Withdrawing from the TPP could have the effect of giving countries like China a bigger hand in the world economy over the US.   Or withdrawing from TPP could have absolutely no effect on anything whatsoever
    • If you can't figure out why Trump goes after the media I can't help you.  I've explained plenty of times why I don't answer questions from the good ol boys club.  Yet you keep asking them......sounds like something a tool would do.     #hypocritesandfrauds
