Garmin VS. Lowrance

4 posts in this topic

I'm going to be purchasing a new GPS this year and I believe I have it norrowed down to either a Garmin 60CSx or a Lowrance Expedition. I will be using it for both fishing and hunting. The one I get must have good signal. Just looking for some opinions.

I have the Garmin 76 Cx witch essentialy the same as the 60 series except it floats and I love it. I didnt get S model as didnt think I would need the barometer or the electric compass.

Its amazing all the features these have to many to describe.

I really cant say witch would be a better choice for you because I never used the Lowrance GPS. Best I can do is tell you my experence is with the Garmin and as stated love it.

One thing to keep in mind is as though you can get the Lakemaster chip but they dont offer the avionics chip for Garmin as of yet. I think the Lowrance can use either of the two chips.

Check out ProFishingSupply.com great prices and he will have a desciption of the models you are looking at and Dave is agreat guy to work with

I have 4 different Lowrance units. Car, boat and portables. I love them.

I'm sure either one will serve you well.

What you might want to consider is asking the dealer to show you each unit with both chips in it and then see how far each will let you zoom in on the same spot(Lakemaster & Navionics). I think you'll be very happy to see how much better one preforms over the other. I have a Lowrance with the Lakemaster and I LOVE it. The other option you might want to consider is going with a color screen.
