Lowrance XOG? or Lowrance Endura Safari?

5 posts in this topic

I am looking at buying one of the above named units. What does everybody think of the XOG? Or does anyone have any new info about the new Lowrance Endura series handheld GPS units. I know they don't come out till May, but I was wondering if it is worth the wait, or just buy a XOG? Thanks for the help.

Depends on what you'd be using it for. If you're looking for a GPS for the truck or car and sometimes use it on the lake then the XOG would work for you. The XOG doesn't have a lot of battery life and isn't as water proof (I'm comparing to the H2O since it should be similar to the Endura.) The XOG does have a little larger screen and it's small enough and light enough to carry in your pocket.

I should have said that I plan to primarily use the GPS for fishing.

Endura or find a H2Oc. The XOG is a awesome unit and can handle a chip but isnt waterproof so its not a good choice in a boat unless you dont fish in the rain and it will be protected by a windshield.

Some guys used them this winter on the ice and liked them on their wheelers/sleds though.

For all around fishing I would get something waterproof though so the Endura would be my choice.

I'm pretty sure that, initially, the Enduras will not be able to read lake data cards. They will use a micro chip, and there are still software issues re: lake data to be worked out. Eventually they will read lake data.

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
