yep. their 1199, 1799, and 2799 for the 7", 9"and 12" respectively without a transducer. i'm too old to have any more kids that i could trade for one and i know my first born would never agree to it, and if i ever tried to get $2799 through management for another boat gizmo i'm truely afraid of what might happen.
god bless you guys who can drop that kind of money on one....or more.

Great, I just bought a '13 boat with Gen2, I wonder how long they will support Gen2 since Gen3's are coming out...

Five years is what I have been told by Lowrance.

Waste of money. Wait for gen 4, that should be something with significant change.

I take issue with the price of electronics today and the short term support that comes with them. Hasn't been that long ago you could send your 10 yr old X16's to Lowrance and for $100 get them back in new working condition. That was true customer support. Today you can spend $3500 on a graph with a 2yr warranty and a few years after the warranty period is up the support is gone as well. IMO for what a 8-12" graph costs today you should be able to get it repaired for a reasonable fee after the warranty period. If you could count on them to last trouble free for 5-8 yrs I might feel differently but that has not been my experience to date with the 6 or so big screens I've owned.

Lowrance has gone the Apple iPhone route and I'm not being fooled into it. Until there is a true advancement in technology other than a touch screen and minor upgrades I'll be sticking with my 10 Gen1's

Not wanting to start a brand war but HB has long term technical support for theirs. They still include the old units in updates etc as well.

Thanks Mark, I wasn't aware of that. I've been a Lowrance guy since the 2330's and X16's were top of the line and haven't considered anything else. May be time to open my eyes and look around.
