I haven't used that particular unit but I think Humminbird makes good units, the only drawback for some people is they don't take LakeMaster chips. I like the display and colors on Humminbird units.

I use both LM and Nav chips depending on where I'm fishing, they're both good.

I don't advertise the 595c on my HSOforum but my suppliers have it in stock. And you probably know this already but there's a $50 manufacturer rebate on them right now too. Shoot me an email at dweber@profishingsupply.ocm if you want and I'll let you what my price is for that unit, I'll probably have the best price you will find. And if you need some help with the installation I can help with that too.

The big box store located in Rogers and Owatonna has them for sale right now at $399 online, plus the mail in discount gets you down to $349. That's a steal to get in on a color, GPS mapping unit. Just got mine yesterday so I'll be hooking it up this weekend. From what I read, the installation is pretty easy. It does have an external GPS puck which is a slight draw-back from some of the built in models, but at that price I'm not going to complain.

Looking at the Navionics HSOforum, it looks like they've got a lot of the popular lakes mapped out in detail, but most are still based on the DNR lake maps. Not sure what the down side is to Navionics from Lakemaster, looks to me like they're basically the same. Maybe others can jump in on that topic.

BB- I ended up ordering too. Can't wait to use the unit. Also got 07 Navionics hot map which should still have the lakes in HD and be used in this unit.

I am horrible at putting things together so I really hope I can install this gps on my own.

    • Seems as if you would.  Where is the seam?
    • First and foremost Donald Trump is an enemy of the Truth,why would the whitehouse ask the FBI  to knock down recent Trump/Russia stories ????What are they afraid of ??? Could it be the the TRUTH
    • Trumpettes would make a great anchor for said boat. 
    • Man the Avs are a dumpster fire this year, looking at that team when we knocked them out of the playoffs they were loaded with young talent and had the potential to be one of the best teams in the league. Now their stars are gone or playing way below their capabilities and everyone else looks like AHLers.

    • Yet for all of our success in western medicine its hard not to look around and see people dropping like flies from numerous diseases and other health issues. Not sure if I am here to defend Juice or not but I will toss an alternative view into the pot.

      I think sometimes overlooked in the healthcare mess is stress, lifestyle and belief. Stress is basically a killer, maybe more than anything else, if one can reduce stress you will go a long way to being healthy and happy. Of course getting cancer is a very stressful event so that can spiral out of control. Lifestyle is similar, eat healthy and exercise and you can take control of your health on your own. Not that healthy people don't die but the majority of the health issues could be traced back to what we eat. I kind of believe food is medicine, you are what you eat and all that jazz.

      Belief is where I will catch the most flack but here is goes. Earlier in this thread people talk about placebo's, they are medical proof that the mind can fool the body. So if you have a strong minded individual why can't you do more? If one believes in the witch Dr. that is going to work for him, if one believes in western treatments that can work for that person. I know a guy who is still alive after the witch Dr treatment, we kind of ridiculed him in private at the time but for whatever reason it worked. The power of the mind can absolutely change things and this is scientifically proven, only our limited thinking can determine what we are capable of. I say go with what you believe and keep and strong and positive attitude. Maybe beating cancer is mental, then eat well, lower stress and take care of yourself and see what happens. I'm not saying don't use modern medicine but I wouldn't completely shut out the idea of using alternative treatments along side it and see what works for you.

      Good read here about a guy who went back to an island near Greece to die. No placebo here but something could be said for lowering stress and lifestyle changes.

        Another good article on the placebo affect, the man still died of cancer but you should read the story anyway because belief played a big roll in his short term cure and death.

    •     The DEA, in making its long-awaited announcement, said the decision to keep marijuana as a "Schedule 1" narcotic “is tethered to the science.” “Right now, the science doesn’t support [the reclassification],” Chuck Rosenberg, acting DEA administrator, said.        Still not completely convinced the earth is round...

    • This is what the Whitehouse does don't you know that? Gotta love how the most "transparent" president ever gets a free pass from the press and the left when it comes to his war on whistleblowers and domestic spying. Let me know if you ever find that US propaganda Nick, its right in your face every day. Not here to defend Trump, just pointing this stuff out.
