Fishfinders... (Lowrance & Hummingbird)

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I'm thinking of upgrading my poorly equipped electronics.

The Hummingbird side imaging looks cool but Lowrance has some great products too. I've also heard that while the side imaging "looks cool", it's not necessarily that practical or applicable day-in and day-out.

Of course, there's also Raymarine which seems to offer some good products too.

I'm planning on getting one unit for the front of the boat and probably coupled with a Motorguide trolling motor and then have a 2nd unit for the console.

Fishfinding, GPS & lake chips... any opinions on the higher-end electronics that are out there?

The higher end will be higher next month.  Low is coming out with HD units which may blow the current market away but they seem to be pricey.  I have 520c units and don't plan to change.

I'm looking to replace my 2nd failed garmin gps sounder within tle last five years. Hummingbird units look very favorable to me. I called Hummingbird service & talked to a very knowledgeable gal on the phone. Most of their units work with a dual cone (20 degree & 60 degree) or some with a quad cone transducer. These units allow you to see a wider area under & to the side. The side imaging units allow up to 180 degree view of the bottom. I have been impressed with their technology and service.
