Lowrance XOG

5 posts in this topic

Anyone looked at the XOG GPS unit. I am leaning toward a H2Oc, but thought I would ask the experts before making my final choice.

I would mostly be using a GPS for fishing (80% hardwater 20% softwater), but occasionally for snowmobiling or hiking.

I think the xog is a great unit especially if you'd use it for driving / traveling (and could have it plugged in while doing it) in addition to outdoor use. But if you're talking about using it for fishing and other strictly outdoor uses I think you'd be happier with the H2OC.

I carry both those units at Pro Fishing Supply, if you're interested you can check them out HERE

while I personally own an H20C, I saw one of the popular outdoor stores with all the animals mounts has a heck of deal on that XOG, just an FYI

I would go with the H2Oc. I've used the XOG and while it is nice, it's not as durable as the H2Oc and the XOG has experienced a few problems... not taking a charge... touch-screen not as functional in extreme cold... waterproof issues... the XOG is more designed for inside a car/truck as a navigational system, not necessarily something you would want to drag around with you on the ice...

If you're looking for a behind-the-wheel navigational system then the XOG is a very nice lucrative option, but for using it outside and for mostly purposes I would go with the H2Oc...

Thanks for your responses. Matt, you have confirmed much of what I was thinking.

Much appreciated!

    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
