So with no budget in mind, how would you outfit your boat with the the latest technology? The only limit would be a maximum of four graphs. Go!

Iā€™d have four Lowrance 12ā€™s. I like the music and PowerPole controls. Also like running videos while I fish. I get bored.

All I need is a GPS and an old school flasher.

Iā€™m not in love with the Garmin graph itself, but Livescope is the greatest invention in graphs so far. Side imaging is easier and faster, but the livescope is so much better.


And for some reason my Garmin map card is very inaccurate, which is a big surprise to me.

so if you had old graphs in front and console, had limited budget. Would like get Livescope for front, or put something with down/side imaging at the console? Which is more beneficial if you could only do one at the moment?

I would also vote for the live scope. Also Garmin units in general. The mega 360 might give you a crisper picture but the new Garmin's produce such a sharp image you won't miss anything with them. They are so easy to use, and their auto settings are usually spot on that you don't have to mess with them.

Is live scope worth the price if you dont crappie fish that much?
