Lowrance and Humminbird both have good products.

Lowrance was and still is much more popular than Humminbird, and HB has had many, many models of fishfinders over the last few years ....... so you probably won't find many people that have used that particular unit which you're asking about.

My opinion is that both are good sonars. But in this case the x510c has higher screen resolution (480x480) so it will draw a better picture than the 747c (320x240) --- that will do a better job of showing you fish and baitfish and weeds and target separation, etc. And even though they are the same price now, the x510c was once a $500 unit, it's just marked down now because it's on closeout.

Unless you have something against Lowrance, or unless you really want a HB, between the two units you asked about I would choose the Lowrance. Hope that helps and good luck with your decision.

Thanks Perch I have been looking at alot of units these past few weeks and I just dont know what to get. I thougt I had my mind up but then I look at something else than something else well in the end you just get confused as heck. I sure do appreciate your input, and when I do buy I will definately be looking at going through you.

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
