Re-Rigging my boat this winter and want to put on a new fishfinder(sonar)/gps combo unit. My current graph does a very poor job (false echo) and would like to have a nice unit this year. I could use any recommendations or a good web site that has honest comparisons and reviews of units. :confused:

Personally I like the Lowrance stuff. I have the LCX-19C and love it. If I had to do it again, I would get two, one GPS and one graph. Lots of good deals on stuff right now. Find a pair in your price range and go for it. I would recommend a few features:

Make sure they take a lake mapping chip (GPS)
Highest VERTICAL pixel count you can afford (Sonar)
Color (Both)
20 Degree Transducer (Sonar)

RubberDucky finding a website that will compare units is going to be tough
for several reasons...
The ad dollars needed to keep a company running verses the revenue generated by customers is right at zero...

I can reccomend several units, I'll openly point out the + & - 's of each unit
and offer the lowest price around ...
let me know if you would like me to do this...

I fyou want more comparisons contact the FISHDOG guys also, I can personaly say they got me a real good deal on my combo unit. I also like the lowrance equipment {337C} still learning it though, got it late last season. But I strongly recommend the ability to install an upgrade chip for the basemap, more than worth the money spent.

Go out to the electronics forum at thehulltruth.

My budget and mounting space are leading me to purchase the Lowrance 332C (or 334C with internal antenna).

I put it in April last year - absolutly the best thing I could have done:) . Crystal clear view, saved me during a fog blow in (easy to find my way back) and I can play with it in the garage (rename way points, set course's, change display info...) I have the dual frequency for Salmon trolling
