New electronics time.

Thread starter #1
Anybody seen any really good deals on electronics lately? Looking at 9-10 inch screen size. Been a Lowrance guy all my life. With all the new features out, I have become open minded to all brands.
 
I have HB Helix 9 MSI+ G3N GPS at the console. Really good SI.
Up front is a Garmin Echomap+ 93sv with a Panoptix LiveScope System. Game changa! (y)

All purchased from BBG Marine, except 93sv which was on sale at Cabelas for $599. Not sure if any are left at that price.

Now I am poor, but happy.
 
I just put two new garmin 93sv plus units on and absolutely love them, live scope is on the way, it is amazing how good panoptix is, I caught them on sale for 600$, I took two lowrance hds 9 gen 3 off
 
If somebody would like to speak about those hds 9’s, shoot me a pm, I still have all the boxes, manuals and everything, I would sell them, comes with sonar/Hd structure scan transducers and lake maps

I just got a new Huminbird Helix 7 G3 with Side Imaging, for a $630 unit, its highly impressive. Only thing I can say bad about the particular model I got is it doesn't have networking or Bluetooth.

I run HB'S and love them. With that said Garmin might hold the future. Can HB or Lowrance tap into that technology or does Garmin hold the rights to it?
 
I believe garmin has the panoptix warped up, I know they settled a lawsuit with simrad about transducer technology, I’ve had all of them and the garmin is what i have on both rigs

Lowrance has a similar product coming out but so far it seems lacking up against the Garmin.
 
was looking at lowrance hook 2 past dedember. dealer convinced me to go otherwise. picked up a garmin 93sv at bass pro for 600. love it.u might still b able to find em for that price
 
The Garmin LakeVu G3 maps that come with the 93sv are pretty dang good. Also note 1) Garmin owns Navionics now, so you don't need a Navionics card for a Garmin - they won't work anyway. HB will run either Navionics or LakeMaster. I put a Navionics+ in my 'bird - already had it from a bundle Lowrance Hook2 I am selling.
 
My Lowrance is 14 years old and still going strong. Built like a tank.

The feature race is interesting, but how long they gonna last?
