They're all good. Each show fish, structure, and cover, but in different presentations.

I have been real impressed with the Garmin I put on my wifes pontoon and its not the top of the line for them either. I will put Garmins on my next boat.

I don't like that the way up put readout on the Lowrance units... You have to for every screen you use... They both work well for finding fish... HB side image is better.

They are all good if you know how to use them, install them, and adjust them. They all suck if you don't know the same things. Haha.
Eat. Sleep. Fish.

Eagle, but then I'm old school. smile I've got the Mark 480 on the TM and it shows me all I need.

Never wanted to have to take a college course just to learn how to work the new ones.

Go ahead, make fun of me.

Install is so very critical for all of these units. I would suggest the one that you can get into with SI/DI and biggest screen is going to be the "best" for you.

I like the HB & Garmins. I own Lowrance.

Not all those who wander are lost.
