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!

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
