Lowrance h2oC

16 posts in this topic

I have the opportunity to buy a used h2oC. Don't know how old it is, but seems to be in good condition. How much do you think it is worth?

They are about $270.00 new. I have had mine for 3 years and 0 problems except the power cord needs to be replaced. I'd say it is worth $200. You can get a new non color unit for $170.00 so use that as a bargaining chip.

It comes with manual, car adaptor, and computer attachment. The only thing that looks used on it is the screen with some scratches.

I did't realize they had dropped that much in price.

If I get it, do I need to get a MMC or SD card? Or can I just get a lake card (navionics, lakemaster, etc).

I would get a lakemaster card for it. That's what I have in mine and love it. I use it fishing & hunting.

what would you need that for? The lakemaster has all the roads etc for MN in it. If you get the Navionics chip it does not have the roads etc. The unit stores the waypoints and trails in its internal memory.

Do you need a blank card to get the sofware updates from Lowrance and transfer them to the unit?

I beleive that is the way they update but if it aint broke don't fix it.

I just use the one in my camera when I do an update. Otherwise I just keep the lakemaster chip in it. You can find them on C List pretty cheap. I think they only have one update for it so far.

I just bought a 4Gig SD at OfficeMax for 9.99. They had 2Gig ones for 7.99

A little shopping on the internet could beat that I bet.

I guess I would pay around $200 for a used h2Oc in good condition with a good cord.

Thanks guys for all the input. I am going to go ahead and get it. Now all I have to do is decide between Navionics and Lakemaster. Doing vast majority of my fishing in SoDak, I don't know yet which one covers the pothole lakes better.

I think you could find a list of lakes each chip contains by going to their web sites. I know Navionics has it on their site.
