Waiting for some warm weather so I can mount them in the boat.

Purchased 2 new Humminbird finders. Helix 7 G2N and a Helix 12 G2N.  Waiting on a new trolling motor. I want the new Ultrex 80 24volt but can't see the money they want for it now.  Will keep checking on prices hopefully I can get one by spring. If anyone should happen to see any deals keep me in mind. Got my new trolling motor last week. Not all I need is warmer weather so I can get these things installed in the boat. Oh, and watching a lot of youtube to better familiarize myself with the 2 finders at least.

I also have a lowrance mark5x dsi  mounted to use on my trolling motor;; its in a grey scale;; gives excellent pix of any type of brush;; ledges;; you name it;; does a down scan;; split screen;; has all of the high features;; but does not have a sim card capability for mapping ;; biggest down side to a grey scale is--- sunlight!!  if sunlight is on the screen;; screen is impossible to see.  otherwise;; one heck of a unit.

An angler in a few water definitely require a trusty, well designed, fully loaded bells and whistles fishfinder, beside his trusty pal, the boat/kayak. I have plenty of those around me with various types of fishfinders. They utilize them to the max capacity. I'll have them give you the pros and cons from the techno-geek side, if info on the internet don't provide you with everything.

Carl I'll start by saying the depth/fish finder has come a long way. I like others turn it on and start to fish. I can tell the electronic of today can do so much more if you fine tune them. Personally I'm lacking in that department since I can count on my 1 hand how many time I've used my electronics in 3 years. You know what the old saying is use it or loose it, I've lost it but do know how to turn it on such a shame to have such an expensive piece of equipment and not using its full potential.

my main one is a lowrance  mark 5 x hds unit;; does  not have a sim card capability;; only way I can down load info. onto mine;; is to connect it to another hds unit;; and down load information to my unit .  other than that;; its one heck of a great unit;; gives outstanding  pictures; of anything underwater..  greatly pleased with this unit;;(  you can see it on my pix pages also)  gives water depth;; water temp.  shows thermoclines;;  in short;; just about any thing you need!!

Scruffy I know I will learn a lot. I have 2 humminbird side finders and to be truthful you need to use them or loose what little knowledge you have.

You start Carl with your Lowrance
Comment by carl hendrix on September 28, 2014 at 7:24pm

some depth finders;; have the access of sim cards;; so you can make maps of your area lakes;; down load tons of useful information. so many new types of fish finders on the market;; and their abilities;; no doubt so many of the bbg group has depth finders;; lets give a general discussion;; on the pro and cons;; of what we have!!

Should be interesting. I've used FFs in the past, but never had one of my own. This should be interesting!
