I need to get a unit for the bow of my boat. I have an older Lowrance at the helm and the easiest option would be to mount a new unit on the bow, however, I'm open to going through the pain of re-running wires if there's some reason I'd rather the side scan at the helm.
My thinking is the side scan is more useful up front to use while I'm actually fishing so I can fish the spots or fish that come across the graph as I see them. The older sonar is fine on the back since any fish I see on it would be under the boat and they'd already be spooked.
Just curious what some other pros and cons might be while I weigh all my options.
