I've had 4 bottom machines two HB and two Lowrance. I think the menu is better on the Lowrance units and I definately know they have better cable fittings/more water tight plus the units themselves are sealed better. I have a nice 7 in HB now with side scan and put it in a water proof case for going in and out of surf. These units no matter the brand are not "Water Proof" as me now I know? Ha Ha
