Depends on who u ask. Got 2 buddies with Garmins and both have nothing but issues. Spot lock never works right and delays on pedal to head issues. One just got the Ghost and loves it. He actually had me order 2 more for his buddies

Never buy first release of these things... I'll consider one in a year or two when kinks are worked out and we have enough data to matter

I’ve had my Lowrance since thanksgiving and have used it almost every weekend since then, zero issues with mine yet. So, not sure there will be any changes in the first year, plus it’s already been out for a few years on a few prostaffer boats.
