Humminbird, they have came a long way and make some great units. Stay away from Lowrance, customer service sucks.

I have used Lowrance fish finder (prefer Garmin GPS) productsfor 15 years now with two units purchased in the last 2 years and i have never had a problem with the units. i have an X-75 on thetrolling motorof my Crappie boat that i have used for 10 years and it still works flawlessly. I have contacted customer service on a few occasions with the most recent purchase about configuring and calibration my fuel probe and had no issues.

I think a lot of people have problems because theirunit isnot properly installed. You can certainly buy a better unit but you aregoing to pay way more for it.

I've been using a LCX-18c for 4 years and no complaints except gps module went out last year. But I love the sounder display, I just use my back- up garmin GPS for navigation!

I have had both and like them both. The only problems I have with the lowrance is that sometimes the NMEA 2000 network stops responding and I have to reset the unit. Rare tho.

People have had issues with the Lowrance GPS units and the GPS portions of the combo units. But their bottom machine units tend to work great. I personally have used my Lowrance bottom machine for years and it has been great. But I would not own one of their GPS products.

What are you wanting to use the unit for and what areas will you be using it at. I have had a Humminbird 997c Si for several years and can give you some advise that could potentially save you a lot of money. PM me with a little more detailed information.
