GPS Help

Recommended Posts

My old, and I mean old, Eagle GPS just bit the dust. I used the Search feature on the forums and my head is dizzy with all the info I found. Clear it up for me and give me a push. Is the Lowrance iFinder H2O THE unit to get? Color or greyscale? It takes a map chip like Lake Master, correct?

Yes it takes lakemaster and Navionics. I prefer color but it is a personal preferance. You will get much more life out of your batteries with grayscale.

I myself have a garmin and now I am kinda leaning towards the H2O because of the chips it will take. When I bought mine Garmin supported Navionics but not no more, Kind of a dumb move I would say.

I have two Garmins and the Lowrance H2Oc. They are all great units but the H2Oc is the best unit for the price, IMO.

I have the newest version of the LakeMaster ProMap and I love it. The down side to LakeMaster is that it doesn't have the trade-in/upgrade program like Navionics does.

I spent a little extra money and bought Lithium AA batteries for my H2Oc. I would definitely recomend going with the color even though they use a little more juice than the grey-scale.

I would say yes... right now. that seems to be the unit to get for the money... I have the Ifisnder pro.. greyscale and love it.. reason I went with grey scale.. batteries last longer.

confused.gif The new Lakemaster Chip is $79 the Navionics is $150 the older Lakemaster chips can be had for $40.

Sounds like a downside for Navionics to me.....

Navionics has a lot more coverage. The great lakes are included from what i understand, someone correct me if I'm wrong. Also alot of other lakes that i fish are on it that are not on my lakemaster chip so it really boils down to what you want but for extra money it is worth it in my book. Looking forward to getting this one. grin.gif

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
