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.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
