Wanting to put a 5" graph on my dash dedicated to just maps.

What is the best one for the money ??????

Cabelas has a helix 5 for $299

It will not be linked with any other graph.

There are several Helix 5 models that do not have GPS/mapping.
Humminbirds read Lakemaster and Navionics.

I have both Lowrance and Humminbird units on my boat. (Humminbird connected to Ultrex for following contours). In my opinion, the mapping/charts and unit capabilities related to charts are much superior on Humminbirds. You can offset lake level drops, and you can use many more depth range colors to aid navigation and area selection.
