I'm trying to figure out why lowarance are 3200 for a hds12. And the bird 1199s were 2k. I know there a little smaller but why are lowrance so much ? I have bird stuff but I'm thinking of switching cause lowarance gives bonus money.

You're looking at gen3's which have chirp and all kinds of other junk built in. For a comparable product you would need to look at the Hbird Onix and then add the chirp module.

Lowrance Gen2 are way cheaper than the gen3's.

Lowrance HDS 12 Gen 3 have a bigger screen and faster processor than Gen 2 units they are set up for the new 3D module. The only reason I purchased the Gen 3 was to have the 3D which I'm about to add. There are some great deals on Gen 2 models right now.
to compare apples to apples with Hummingbird I think the Onix units are a closer to Gen 3 lowrance.

if you think it looks cool online wait unit you are in a boat with it installed. Amazing! I was sold immediately, I should have mine installed by the end of the month and will try to provide some screen shots and give feedback.
