SC53 Posted December 13, 2019 Share Posted December 13, 2019 Ok, not a bash thread, just a quick comparison of what I’ve observed. Always been a Lowrance guy but after reading the reviews on the Garmin units, I decided to upgrade an old Lowrance I had on the bow to a Garmin. Ended up going with the Garmin Echomap 93 SV upfront on the trolling motor (Cabela’s sale of $599) I still have a Lowrance Elite 12Ti (gen 1) on the console so I can do somewhat of a side by side comparison. This unit has their skimmer and structure scan transducers connected via a Y cable. Only been out a couple times since installing the Garmin but here’s my initial assessment. The Garmin’s side and bottom views are superior to the Lowrance. Much more detail seen, especially in shallow water where I mostly fish. Lowrance sonar is better than the Garmin's but I haven’t had time to mess with any adjustments on the Garmin yet. The larger screen on the Lowrance probably helps with this but the images just look cleaner. I really like the fact the Garmin came with a trolling motor mount too. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
