Looking to buy a new graph and the salesman at BPS highly recommended the Garmin Echomap 93sv over similar Lowrance. His rationale was that if I did not care about touch screen capability (which I don't), then the Garmin had equal if not better down and side imaging, etc. for substantially less $$$.

Thoughts?

I agreee with the salesman. I absolutely love my 93. I'm buying a second one for the front of my boat this weekend.

Buy it!!!! I was a big fan of the birds until I seen Garmin...... My predictions are that Garmin will lead the marine electronic market soon.

They come with a [censored] load of lakes loaded on them but for $200 you can buy the garmin lakes hd (or something like that) and they are very detailed.... Kinda like Google earth. It's har mariners eye view and fish eye view that's really cool too.

Chrip does not have anything to do with maps.

Thanks for all of the input. Sounds like a winner to me.

Regarding CHIRP - from the Garmin website, the 93sv does not appear to be CHIRP capable, though other units are (more $$$).

R6crew - here is a link to the Garmin website that shows their CHIRP equipped graphs.

https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/cOnTheWater-bBRAND613-p1.html

Is CHIRP worth the extra ~$500 or $600? Serious question - first I have ever heard of it and don't know anything about it.
