I love mine. Mostly , I fish brushpiles for crappie. The anchor function is
wonderful.

do you have it linked with a lowrance? Is that the only way it will anchor?

On the remote , there is an anchor button that activates spot lock and the numbers one thru 8 for favorite spots. I have ordered a lowrance so that I can mark all my
brushpiles and use waypoints to position the boat at each location.

It is so cool to just get close to your spot , hit a button and let the
TM do all the work .

good luck
