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.

    • My buddy found this today! Great day to be out! future booner!
    • He only got one? Had 3 more in my pocket!!; I didn't want them in cold spring!
    •   http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/320316-trump-clarifies-remarks-on-nonexistent-sweden-incident-i-got-it   Nah, he just got it from Fox News. Where else would he be able to get accurate information about what is happening in the world?  
    • I have those on my 2 place trailer. Also have a set of plastic ski skins to go under skis but havnt tried them yet.
    • Hard not to look in the mirror and admit our meddling all over the world over the past 60 years has brought us nothing but trouble. You can shift blame to some radical religion if you want, plenty of blame there too but why force ourselves to step on that hornets nest in the first place when we didn't have to. But hey we are masters of destabilizing and regime changes and I don't think that is an accident. You can blame some religion if you want but I doubt Christians or you or I would be any different had some other country toppled our government and took over our country. Of course it is always in the name of peace and freedom, or at least that is what plays on the news.
    • https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/19/us/politics/donald-trump-ukraine-russia.html   To summarize for those too lazy to read the article:   A Putin-backed Ukranian lawmaker, a convicted mobster that's friends with Donald Trump, and his Russian-linked personal lawyer (who's being investigated for, guess what, his links to Russia) came to Michael Flynn (fired for lying about his contacts with Russia) with a plan that would essentially gift (the illegally annexed sovereign Ukrainian territory of) Crimea to Russia, and lift all related sanctions.
    • Spent about 4hrs there today with my family and had a great time. My twin 6yr olds had a blast and came home with lots of freebies.   im not a wine and dine hunting lodge guy so many booths didn't appeal to me. But lots of good dog stuff and conservation talk.   i pet and scratched more dogs behind the  ear today than I have in my entire life. Looking forward to Sioux Falls hosting it next year.
    • From Wikipedia Nope, nothing to see here. We had nothing to do with it. No involvement at all.
