Is this ad for real? I watched the video and all it just seems like getting gps/si/di for 400 bucks is too good to be true

OK, so yes, it kind of is too good to be true. I mean, sure, you are getting all of that for $400, and the images are great.

BUT

the GPS is ONLY GPS. No maps. You can't even add maps with a card. You need to buy the Chartplotter model to get mapping with the GPS. That will run you another $200. I don't know how anyone can get by without maps personally.

Is it like a generic white screen or do you think it has basic waterbodies with less detail? I'm just looking to save waypoints and have the ability to navigate back to them.

It's a plain white screen, but it does record trails and waypoints. I tried to put my Navionics card in one to see what would happen, so that's how I know it won't do any mapping at all. I think they did that to compete with some of the lower priced Garmin units with GPS but no maps.

It shows that you can upgrade to c-map or navionics.

I don't need map, so hook2 7 gives me all I want: sonar, downscan, sidescan and GPS track.

Correct, neither model has networking of any kind.

I think you're crazy, but I'm glad you can save the extra $200 on the mapping model and be happy. smile

Why do you need a map? If you have waypoints and trails, that will get you back to anywhere on the lake.

Wonder if a boat lane card will load?
