Get the point 1, the older antenna isn't any better than the built in antenna.

The big Point-1 advantage for most of us bass guys with open boats is the heading sensor that is part of the Point-1 accessory. Rarely is there a big difference in received GPS satellite signal. Instead, the gain is that the heading sensor helps stop the map from spinning if your movement slows down to a crawl. At very low (or zero) speeds) the computer can't tell which way the boat is pointing and the map can begin to spin as a result.

The heading sensor inside the Point-1 generally stops the spin in its tracks. That way, you can approach a waypoint at creep speed and remain locked on with a stable map view. Point-1 definitely works with Gen2 and later. There is conflicting info about it working as intended with Gen1 HDS units. (Lowrance used to say it did not, but owners have reported that it did work.)
